800,000 photos were tagged Sandy over the past week.  What was interesting is Kevin's comment that cell phone data plans are an obstacle for sharing more.  Imagine how many more photos would have been shared if the cell coverage wasn't damaged as well.

Kevin thinks Mobile is just starting given it has only existed for a couple of years for many.

Latency is another issue that Kevin touches on for mobile networks.
