Video of Kevin Systrom Introducing Instagram Direct Yesterday

Two things:

  1. I was there for this event, and I thought it was nicely done. I continue to be impressed by the thoughtfulness and care put into Instagram, and the same care was put into the staging of the event itself.

  2. At the 12:35 mark, right in the middle of demonstrating the workflow of sending direct messages in Instagram, Systrom had to dismiss the “Rate Instagram” alert. Right in the middle of a public demonstration.
