1 Second Everyday

When you work with great people, their brilliance is bound to rub off a little.  Earlier this month, a few of my colleagues told me about an app called 1 Second Everyday.  The app allows you to create a video made up of a photo or one second video clip from each day of the …

This post will hopefully generate a little discussion.  I have a lot of questions about this and I’m hoping you might be able to help clear my thinking with some of your thoughts.
