App: 20 Days in the Life of a Stranger

I’m intrigued by this upcoming iPhone app:

Basically you get paired with a stranger and you each get updates on what the other person is doing and where at any given time of day. You don’t actually have to do anything; you’re not posting your own updates, it’s all automatically done by your phone. And yet it’s supposed to basically be anonymous.

“We’re trying to provide just enough to the recipient of your life to allow someone to imagine it without providing actual information–it’s something in between information and imagination.” source

I’m so intrigued by this blurred line we have between public and private lives these days. I’m not sure that the app is something I’d want to use but I’d be curious to at least check it out and see how it works.
