…Synchronicity needs your help?

Synchronicity

The Synchronicity Project is a simple yet beautiful idea to “Share the Time and Environment. Photos and Reports of the Globe at Glance.”

Created by Jun Tsuzuki, it’s supported by participants who find the project interesting, and is free to join if you fit that single criteria.

To participate, simply take a picture of where you are at and what you are up to, regardless of what that is, at a designated time.

The designated time is chosen by Jun, and has either a neat and euphonious look (Examp: 11:11:11 on 11/11) or a time during which a historical event took place (Examp: 9/11)

The designated time is also based on the GMT, so your specific time might not match up with the perfect time, but that’s actually the point. It’s supposed to be a portrait of the world at a single point in time, though not necessarily the “perfect” point in time.

If the project interests you, and you’d like to participate, then you’d better find a camera quick, because the next time is January 1st at 00:00:00 GMT (December 31st at 04:00:00PM on the West Coast, and 07:00:00PM on the East Coast if you’re in the US).

What will you be doing?

…Jason Lewis likes to travel?

Expedition 360 Map

Jason Lewis recently completed his journey around the world; a 13 year, 2 month and 23 day trip that makes him the first person to ever circumnavigate the globe (reach antipodal points on the surface of the globe) using only human power. (No motors or sails.)

Transportation included bicycles, in-line skates, kayaks, swimming, walking and a unique pedal powered boat, and he traveled over 45,000 miles, including five continents, two oceans and one sea.

During the trip, Jason was hit by a drunk driver, chased by a crocodile, harassed by pirates, and questioned as a suspected spy.

I can only hope it was worth it, because Jason Lewis apparently doesn’t know the meaning of the word ‘quit’.

…Your watch can hold the world?

Globe Watch

If you really want a watch that stands out, check out the Rotating Earth Watch from ThinkGeek. This Seiko powered watch features a 3D Earth that rotates every 24 hours, just like the full size 3D Earth. A small time zone indicator tells you the hours, while a small orange dot indicates the minutes. It’s even made of titanium to keep things light. Now you can have the whole world on your wrist.
