Better than Television

Remember the photobooks "A day in the life of..."? 200 photographers would scatter around a country, photograph visually memorable stories all in the course of one day. The hope was you'd see page by page how diverse life was.

This is Now Is A Day in the Life of's digital grandchild.

This is Now is a web site which displays Instagram photos as soon as they are uploaded, from select cities around the world. Using embedded geotags you are able to see whatever strikes the fancy of Instagramers in New York, London, Tokyo, Sao Paulo and Sydney.

It's like watching Tumblr, only more voyeuristic.

Iphones take lousy photos.
