Welcome to the3six5 Chicago!
the3six5 originally started in 2009, when Chicagoans Daniel Honigman and Len Kendall launched the3six5 as an experiment, really. It was an opportunity for people across the globe to share one day of their life, amongst 364 others who would be doing the same. In doing so, they helped write the story of an entire year.
Each day, in chronological order, another person took the stage. Some were celebrities, while others were unknowns. Some were immersed in the world of the web, and for others, this was the only blog post they would ever write.
In the end, a public diary was created that provided a peek inside the lives of people everywhere. the3six5 zoomed from city to city each day, providing something a bit different. Not news, not a blog about -- whatever -- just a microphone that belonged to that one person, for that one day.
As the second year of the project begins, the3six5 is expanding with local editions. Chicago, being our home, will hopefully be the first of many iterations of this little experiment, -- or as many as we can handle -- and we're grateful for the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Now for extending us this opportunity.
Thanks for stopping by, and we'll see you soon!
