NOT LYDIA is not named Lydia. She sits on a park bench one day and sees a mountain hovering over a parking lot. Such a thing! Her brain alights trying to figure it out but instead a piano is on fire underground. She can’t stop crying it’s so beautiful.
A single lightbulb flickers on and a voiceover describes things you’re not seeing.
A dead man sits with his back turned to us. We realize we’re outside. It’s night and we can’t speak. We just watch the dead man and wonder what his face is.
NOT LYDIA spends an entire montage traveling to the mountains but they keep getting farther away. So she digs down into the earth. She digs for two days. Finally, she finds a hatch. On the hatch is a lock. On the lock is a map. On the map is a mountain. On the mountain is NOT LYDIA. She looks down. Miles below her is a parking lot.
The last few months have been a whirlwind here at Pinterest. It’s hard to explain how it feels to go from a small group of people working on a virtually unknown website, to a slightly bigger team of people working on a service that millions of people use every day. It’s humbling, and exciting.
With all that growth, we’ve gotten more questions from reporters and Pinners. In the past, we’ve been pretty quiet, but we want to get better about answering questions openly with people who are interested in Pinterest We decided to start today by talking about copyright.
