Where were you on this day in 2005? What were you doing? What kind of person were you? Do you find it hard to remember? I certainly do, but I didn’t think of that until I saw the 1 Second Everyday App on Kickstarter... which also just happens to be the subject of this weeks FRESH THôTS.
1 Second Every Day is the brainchild of Cesar Kuriyama, a Brooklynite and self-described “creative human person.” The day Cesar turned 30, he decided to document his life by recording 1 second intervals of his day with a video camera.
The project seems to be panning out to be a truly profound experience. In the video, Cesar comments that the project made him more motivated to make each day, and every second, count. It has encouraged him to break his daily routine, in favor of more memorable experiences.
Cesar’s project has picked up so much steam, in fact, that he even gave a speech about his video project at TED 2012. Since then, Kuriyama has been working with Alchemy 50, a Brooklyn-based app developer, to turn his idea into a universal user experience.
