DAY 15: Couple of small updates!

On the day I turned 30, the very same day of my very first second of the day... I was gifted a bottle of Champagne by one of my good friends.

On the day this Kickstarter was funded, I finally had a reason to open it!

This is the 1 Second Everyday team at Alchemy50 & I taking a brief break to celebrate!

Let me share a couple of things:

ANDROID UPDATE:  I'm meeting some developers this week! & will be at the Android Devs Meetup at Google NYC HQ on Wednesday Night!  If you'll be there, please say hi! :)  (also if you haven't already read it, I posted a detailed FAQ on the bottom of the main page)

I've been absolutely FLOODED with non-stop e-mails & having issues keeping up.  At the very least I do try and read all of them.  And I felt this one in particular was worth sharing with everyone:

Hey from Australia!

I have no idea how but at some point in 2011 I managed to find your TED audition showing the start of your 1 second project.

I thought it was a great idea so decided to give it a go myself. Since May 2011 I have filmed something every day (proud to say I haven't missed one). So far I've got 17 months of footage edited and cut together.

I suppose I don't really need to tell you what an incredibly rewarding experience this has been since you already know first hand.This project has deeply integrated itself into my life, so much so that I no longer think about it as a project but more as just something I will always do.

I had been meaning to email you for a while but couldn't remember who you were. I randomly found you again this morning through your app on kickstarter.

All I wanted to say is a massive thank you for the inspiration to start an incredible project.

Amazing to read something like that.  Truly.  And I'm working as hard as I can in hopes that many more can benefit from the positive impact this project might have with all of your lives :)  

While the past 2 weeks have been an incredible digital roller coaster ride of amazing, and I would never be foolish enough to complain about it... I have fallen victim to the stresses I've so often read about through others who have had successful Kickstarter Campaigns.

For at least the first week I managed to reply to every single message I received in a timely manner, but now it's becoming near impossible.  I'm already spending most of each day answering a constant influx of messages.  

Please accept my sincere apology if I fail to reply.  But I feel that in order to deliver the best possible App (and work on getting Android going), as soon as possible... then I have to force myself to spend less time managing the Kickstarter Campaign, and more time delivering on the campaign itself :)

I seriously can't thank everyone enough.  Thank you! Thank you! :)

      There is an app on the Apple AppStore called 1 Second Daily Cam. Did he steal your idea?
