I Found Some Of Your Life

Found a link on Chad Orzel’s page Uncertain Principles to this brilliant site:I Found Some Of Your Life.

From the introduction:

In my possession is one (1) memory card from a digital camera. This memory card was found in a taxi in New York City. I have no idea who the owner of the camera is.

The pictures on the memory card were taken over the course of exactly one (1) year in this person’s life, starting July Twenty-Fifth, Two Thousand and Three (07-25-03) and ending July Twenty-Fourth, Two Thousand and Four (07-24-04).

I am going to post one (1) picture here each day. As there are two hundred and twenty-seven (227) pictures, there will be two hundred and twenty-seven (227) posts. The pictures will appear in chronological order according to the timestamp accompanying each image.

As the images add up, I will attempt to assemble an identity for this unknown person. Each day’s new picture will be a fresh addition to this photographic life-documentation. Only with the unveiling of the final picture (the two hundred and twenty-seventh (227th)) will we finally have a full understanding of this person’s life over the past year – at least as far as these pictures will allow us to infer.

While I wonder whether such an enterprise is actually legal—this funny blogger could end up with a hefty fine, I imagine, if the owner of the memory card turned up angry enough to sue—I think it’s pretty damned hilarious. Go check it out!
