So long, and thanks for all the metadata!

After over one and a half years, over fifty million photos, and countless amounts of coffee, we have decided it's finally time to put this project to bed. We've had a lot of fun, met a lot of great people, educated a lot more, and genuinely felt that we've accomplished something good. Currently, as of January 2012, as far as we know, TwitPic is still not scrubbing metadata; allowing anyone with a modicrum of talent and a shoestring budget the ability to amass this data. So, it would be smart if you read how we were doing this, and how to make sure this is disabled on your phone.

Most of all, we would like to thank all our supporters and the folks who helped get our message out. Thanks folks! You're the ones that made this all possible!
