    I still don't quite understand the hype around instagram and this viddy and socialcam. How is it better, or different from uploading pictures to flickr or videos to YouTube?

    Anything with a user friendly GUI that enables ordinary people to give the false impression that they are talented in something (like Instagram) will be instantly popular.
