I like the ideas of having a little snippet of conversation / background about the person, it's a neat project. But honestly I was not blown away by the photos themselves. I couldn't help but compare them to a Flickr stream I recently stumbled across, if you like street portraits check this guy's work out:
(I am not the owner of that stream, nor do I know them)
Puddleglum: I didn't know of this concept of a clear pixel. Could, in principle, a sensor be constructed entirely of these, which would produce only black and white images, but offer outstanding SNR even at high ISOs?
Edit: I just saw that Leica has made a camera with such a sensor. Interesting.
I wasn't joking, I really didn't know that there was such a product as a true B/W digital camera.

I am such a sucker for the retro look. This this is beautiful.
Please no more megapixels. Bigger files with no real world value.
Nicely done Fuji.

Welcome to 2009 DPreview! :-)
It's neither a camera phone nor a phone camera, because IT DOESN'T MAKE PHONE CALLS. Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Forget all the half-baked upload and sharing features. Just make wireless transfer to smartphones easy, and toss in GPS tagging over Bluetooth from a smartphone, and you've got a winner.
