Thing a Day

A few years back i taught a class at NYU/ITP called the Creative Act. Participants were asked to create something every day of the week (including holidays and weekends) on a variety of themes. Some of my former students have resurrected that process at Thing-a-day.com, and have invited people to sign up for the month of February. This year nearly 800 people are participating - posting daily updates on activities ranging from cooking to knitting to painting to writing. Check it out and cheer them on!

including holidays? you are a hard taskmaster. (it's a fantastic project. you should feel proud.) :)

Damn, too late to sign up.

hey everyone. . . i am really upset that i found out about this one day too late to join. however proving that great minds do indeed think alike i too was inspired to do some creating in 2008. i started a website today, on my birthday, on which i plan to create something everyday for an entire year (or my next birthday, whichever comes first).

good luck to all of you, and i hope to see you on my site

yeah i know it will be tough, but i plan on updating everyday even while traveling, on holidays, weekends, the whole thing. Whether or not i can actually pull it off is another mater.

Thats a cool site. I remember reading an interview you did with Tom Peters talking about the Impossible Projects people would take on as a part of your course.

Would you possibly have an old copy of the syllabus for the course or even a suggested reading list?

I heard about this or something like it last year and started a daily dance video blog.
