Win Tix to A #Nofilter Conversation with the Founders of Instagram

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

While Instagram would be the perfect name for a pot delivery service, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger got there first when they created the app that both let’s you be your own Garry Winogrand, and brag to your friends about what you had for second lunch. I’m an Instagram junkie myself, in fact, you should follow me. Are you interested in learning what the fellas who revolutionized the way we interact with our world have to say? I am! That’s why I’m giving out a pair of premium tickets to A #Nofilter Conversation with the Founders of Instagram.

The details of this Inforum event are below and below that is the entry form. Winner will be notified on Friday, so if you don’t win, you can buy tickets here.

From the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Sandy to your Sunday eggs Benedict in the Mission, Instagram is documenting the world around us. Since its release in October 2010, this digital filter app is reported to have surpassed 100 million registered users, with peak uploads at over 200 photographs per second — launching co-founders Mike Krieger and Kevin Systrom to nearly insta-fame. And their eye-catching communications platform has not left the limelight. Despite media feeding frenzys over Instagram’s $1 billion dollar acquisition by Facebook and a controversial policy-change announcement in December 2012, heightened scrutiny doesn’t seem to be keeping users at bay. Join @mikeyk and @kevin for a conversation with #nofilter at the Castro Theatre.

Location: Castro Theatre, 429 Castro St.
Time: 6 p.m. check-in, 6 p.m. premium ticket reception, 7 p.m. program
Cost: General Admission:$25 non-members, $15 members. Priority Seating: $45 non-members, $30 members. Premium (priority seating and VIP reception with Systrom and Krieger – limited number available): $80 non-members,
