The #Kenya365 Instgram Project

Mutua Matheka and I met up today and hatched an idea to have a little picture fun over the next 12 months. We quickly roped in Eston Whitfield and are looking for a couple more to join up. We’re going to do a picture-a-day on Instagram, and see what happens. Likely others will join in as well, so here are the guidelines:

RULE #1: You can only tag one Instagram photo with #Kenya365 each day.

That is the one and only one rule.

It starts on Sept 1, 2012 (2 days from now) and ends on Aug 31, 2013. To make it more challenging and fun we’re going to ask ourselves to find “interesting” shots each day (however you decide to define that).

Feel free to invite another Instagramer to it, especially if you think they do great stuff, or join in yourself. Just pass on rule #1 to them.

A reminder that this is for fun, and we’ll see what happens. If it’s going well we can create a site to aggregate the images with this tag on it for people to find easily.

    Interesting project Erik, as my contribution people should be able to view the pictures daily at Whive on http://whiv.eu/kenya365 Topic of Interest.

    If you are in Kenya you can also view the daily pics on the http://Whive.com /mobi on the timeline.

    If I may suggest people turn on location on both twitter and instagram to make more interesting visualizations in the future.

    More interesting things we could do on Whive like feature the most viewed or shared photos or active contributors.

    Let’s see what happens. This should be fun :)
