The One-Pic-A-Day Project

I got addicTED after I raided some TED Videos from @BinnyVA‘s collection. Shared some of those awesome presentations with buddies and they too got the TED fever; which was good because we were all downloading TED videos every day.

TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds:ย  Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.

One day I happen to watch a TED Video by Mena Trott, co-founder of TypePad and Six Apart, on the personal connection of blogs and how they help in building a friendlier world. (Mena Trott on Blogs)

Amongst other interesting Blogging stories, Mena talked about her habit of snapping her own self-portrait, which she had been doing for years. Now she has a huge collection of her photos, adding a new picture of herself every day.

I had been following her model since last November, I take at least one shot of myself on my laptop camera and its archived on a daily basis, offline.


Give it a shot, it would be so cool to see all the pics at a later time and see how you evolved.

Tip: I use my Tudumo, my faithful To-Do app to remind me to take the picture. Once the reminder comes up, I snooze it to 24 hours and I get the reminder the next day again.

P.S: If you like to get addicTED, here is a great start: What’s so funny about the Web?
