I won’t get to try Everpix after all. It’s too bad — it really appears to hit that niche for finding and using photos, as opposed to just dropping them in a, well, box. The Everpix team sold their technology to enable an orderly close of business (which I think shows a lot of respect for their customers), so I hope it resurfaces somewhere.

Khoi Vinh also has some thoughts. Perhaps emblematic of the problems that Everpix faced is that he describes Everpix primarily in terms of a backup service, when in fact the core of the experience the team designed was by all accounts much more than than.
