One of Rick Smolan's projects, "A Day in the Life of America", has
spawned a mini-industry of "A Day in the Life of..." photo art books.
A horde of photographers descends on some geographically fecund place
and documents 24 hours worth of typical sights in often stunning
photos. His new project aims to do the same for cyberspace. On
February 28, 100 of the world's top photojournalists will attempt to
find the most intriguing human stories behind the technology to
document "the new ways in which we work, play, learn, conduct business
and interact." You can participate by submitting your own pictures and
stories, with a chance to win some major tech toys (Sun Ultra Sparc!
Digital Camera!). Could this be the coolest online art event of the
year? Highly likely. <URL:http://www.cyber24.com/>
