Video sharing platform Vimeo is broadening its horizons by acquiring Echograph, an iPhone app that lets users quickly create GIF files. Echograph's files for the most part appear like a bunch of still images that have been strung together and give the impression of a moving picture. Vimeo didn't share any information regarding the deal, but said that Echograph, which used to cost $2.99, will now be available to new users for free. Additionally, the company announced that Echograph creator Nick Alt will now head Vimeo's development across all mobile platforms as their new vice president of mobile.

When Dutch filmmaker Frans Hofmeester put the video "Lotte Time Lapse: From birth to 12 in 2 min. 45" on Vimeo one week ago, he thought it might generate some interest. After all, he had been filming his daughter Lotte once a week, every week, since she was born, and by stringing those videos together and speeding them up, he had amassed an impressive time-lapse-like record of his daughter as she grew from a wide-eyed baby  into a coy girl with a penchant for flower barrettes.

Forget Justin Bieber and Rihanna: This week the teenage crowd is obsessed with Joseph Kony, an African warlord responsible for vile acts against children in Uganda and surrounding countries. That's a shift. The reason? Kony 2012 -- a video produced by Invisible Children, a small San Diego-based nonprofit, that suggests that thanks to the power of social media, people right here in America (and around the world) have the power to stop Joseph Kony -- if only they are willing to spread the word through Facebook and Twitter.

The experimental Brazilian beat-music producer Amon Tobin vaulted to the front of his genre when he unveiled a mind-bending new live setup he calls "ISAM:LIVE. " Other electronic artists have been experimenting with LEDs and mapping visuals over 3-D surfaces, but Tobin's "ISAM" escalates the concept to fill an entire stage and upend expectations about what an artist can -- and should -- be doing while performing. On Friday, Tobin brings the second installment of this show, "ISAM:LIVE 2.0,"  to  the Greek Theatre ,  and Pop & Hiss has exclusive video of the new setup, co-created with the L.A. firm V Squared Labs.

On Jan. 11, 2000 -- when he was 19 years old -- Noah Kalina embarked on a photography project he calls "Everyday. " The idea, which has since been imitated hundreds, if not thousands of times, was to take a picture of himself everyday, into perpetuity. In 2006 he uploaded a time lapse video that encompassed six years of those daily photos to Vimeo and YouTube, and it became one of the first truly viral videos on the Internet, spawning hundreds of imitators, and even inspiring a "Simpsons" parody.
