MISSION—Prompted by the thought, "If you could tell the world anything, what would you say?" five students set out to capture their answers on the streets of their SF neighborhoods, armed with an iPod touch and Hipstamatic's social sharing app OGGL. The W.H.Y. (We Hear You) Project, Life Learning Academy, and Hipstamatic are throwing a happy hour honoring the students and displaying their photos on Friday, February 28 from 6 to 8pm. It's happening at the Haus of Hipstamatic at 74 Langton Street; be sure to RSVP! [Racked Inbox]
