On his 30th birthday, Cesar Kuriyan quit his job and started on an interesting project to record one second of video each day for the rest of his life. The video above shows the ~360 seconds of his 31st year. By the time he is 40 he will have a one hour video of the entire decade of his 30s. I find it interesting as a kind of a diary of a year. I'm surprised by how much information is in that one second of video. I can imagine how it can probably reignite memories for each day. He put all this together into a TED talk which has not been released on video yet, but if/when it does show up, I'll be sure to post about it here.
