He has used the resulting collection to build a massive repository of images now on display at the Science Gallery in Dublin, Ireland. The exhibit is named Lifelogging: Do You Count. With magnifying glasses, visitors can see the long history of Frigo's right hand.
How do people respond to his practice? Frigo responds:
I generally try not to speak too much about it and first let them talk about their lives. Obviously, once somebody gets to know me, he or she will become curious about all my procedures, but in the long run I think the general feeling is that my lifelogging practice is rather unobtrusive.
He hopes to continue the practice until he's ready to retire in 2040. With an average of 76 photos a day, that's about 970,900 more pictures.

The latest batch of fad products roll out every year around Christmas, when people spend way too much money and act like animals just to get their hands on the must-have product of the year.
A lot of really bad fad toys have been released in the last forty years, but the fad toys on this list epitomize the love it now, couldn't care less tomorrow core of what makes most fad toys a total waste of money!
1. Pogo Bal-
The pogo stick was rendered obselete by the release of the Pogo Bal in 1986, which didn't mean much because kids had given up their pogo sticks in favor of skateboards and scooters long ago.
Cabbage Patch Kids sprouted out of the ground all cute, clothed and ready for adoption, and kids have never wanted to eat their vegetables more than when they saw those dimple cheeked Kids on toy store shelves.
The Cabbage Patch Riots of 1983 showed how far some parents were willing to go to get their hands on those dolls, which at the time were being mass produced rather cheaply by Coleco.
The good thing about Cabbage Patch Kids is their dollyness- they have plenty of outfits and accessories to keep kids (mostly girls) entertained for years to come.
The bad thing about Cabbage Patch Kids is the cloth material used to make the body got dirty fast, and if you tried to wash them they turned into lumpy Cabbage Patch freaks. Likewise their decal eyes rubbed off if the dolls were played with too roughly, which left them looking so sad:
Getting older doesn’t mean giving up your sense of humor or your unique sense of style, and everybody loves to hang out with a fun loving senior citizen, especially when they’re wearing a hilarious slogan t-shirt!
Yanjin Li's water broke while she and her husband were riding a train in Philadelphia on Christmas. Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer Darrell James of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority arrived to assist her. They coached her through the birthing process and unwrapped the umbilical cord from around the baby's neck. His father placed him in a shirt to keep him warm.
Because he was born on Christmas, the couple named the boy Kris. He's the best Christmas present for everyone involved. The Associated Press reports:
Mother and child were reported in good condition at Hahnemann University Hospital.
James, a father himself, called the birth a blessing. Caban said helping bring a new life into the world was a gift all its own.
"I had already opened all my presents," Caban told WPVI-TV on Thursday. "I didn't know I had another one waiting for me around 5:53 this afternoon."
There were some horrible failures recorded in the past year, as collected here by Fail Army. Get ready to see lots of property destruction, embarrassment, and pain, yet these folks chose to upload the videos to the internet anyway. There's almost a half-hour of clips, so you might want to bookmark it and watch it in pieces. Contains NSFW sweary language, as you can imagine. -via Tastefully Offensive
This is not a fireworks display gone wrong; in fact it worked exactly as intended. But it is also not what an American would expect when they see the term “fireworks display.” I really don’t want to describe it any further, so just watch. It’s not long. The launch was at the Thailand Rocket Festival. -via Metafilter
Today is the day we get to see what people got for Christmas gifts. Some are hysterical, some are funny, and some are downright tragic. But the best gift I’ve seen so far is the one Joey Trombone got for his parents. You can see their reactions in this video, but to find out what he got them, you’ll have to see the picture of the envelope contents at his Facebook page. -via 22 Words
Santa might use a sleigh to do his Christmas deliveries, but you can bet your bottom dollar that if he were to switch to a more modern mode of transportation, he'd be happy to get behind the wheel of on of these cuckoo holiday vechicles featured on InventorSpot.
From graffiti to menorahs and from planes to trains, these people are driven by the holiday spirit and they aren't afraid to show it. They might just put those reindeer antler window accessories of yours to shame.
The baby whose face became the sun on the TV show Teletubbies has spilled her secret. Jess Smith was just nine months old when she was recorded giggling, laughing, and looking. She’s now 19 and a student at Canterbury Christ Church University. Smith said students were encouraged to tell each other something no one knew, and her TV role came out. She later posted it on her Facebook page for her friends.
In 1996, her mother, Anji Smith, 44, took her to Edenbridge Hospital to be weighed and a health visitor, who had been asked by Ragdoll Productions to find smiley babies, put Jess's name forward.
Mrs Smith said it was never intended to be a big thing: "It was just something a bit different to do and we didn't expect it to be as big as it was.
"They just sat her in front of a camera and she just laughed and smiled at her dad.
"We didn't hear anything until we got a letter when she was 18 months old saying she'd been picked.
Russian photographer Andrey Kruglikov posts these spectacular images of the Moscow and St. Petersburg Metro stations to his Instagram account. Kruglikov's choice of black and white for the images perfectly accentuates the striking line and curve of such architectural treasures. These underground stations were largely built pre-Cold War-era, sparing no expense for materials like marble and crystal chandeliers.
