In year 2001, Lomography is almost on its first ten years in the industry! To celebrate this milestone, the very first Lomography Embassy Store opens in Vienna to welcome Lomographers from all over the world! Fun was had, walls were filled with amazing photographs (these would soon be known as LomoWalls) and an array of exciting products were released.
On top of that, a few noteworthy events joined in on the fun:
- Wikipedia, the open source cyber encyclopedia was launched
- The first Harry Potter movie was released -- people were hooked on the magic that was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
- Apple introduced the iPod -- a music player that took the world by storm
- Techno duo Daft Punk released their album Discovery and the 2D animated group Gorillaz made waves in the music industry
