Patent Yogi  is telling us that today Google was granted a patent that discloses a technique to crowd source party pics.

According to some example embodiments, various participants in an event, such as a party, meeting, gathering, or the like may take photographs of the event, including the other participants of the event, the surroundings or location of the event, and the like.

Such photographs may memorialize or document the event. Often photographs taken at an event may be shared with other participants of the event, as well as friends or acquaintances who may not have attended the event. Because photographs taken during an event may provide a record of the event and/or may be shared with people who were not at the event, it may be desirable to obtain a rich array of photographs for the event to capture the greatest sense of the event. In some embodiments, systems and methods may be provided to encourage participants in the event to capture a well rounded and diverse collection of photographs of the event.
