This week, the startup everyone's buzzing about is Color, a free mobile app aimed at creating a social experience that maximizes the smart phone's unique technology. Users share and store photos and videos in visual diaries -- besides being able to view their own media, they can also view media shared by other users nearby and logged around the same time. Color's also worth noting because of its team -- Bill Nguyen of Lala, Peter Pham of BillShrink, and DJ Patil, formerly chief scientist of LinkedIn -- and $41 million pre-launch funding from Sequoia Capital, Bain Capital, and Silicon Valley Bank.
