@rrhoover probably the closest i've seen to a video community, it's the same person that did the learn to dance in 365 days. video upload process is hella janky (i mean there's not even an import / export to youtube or instagram) but the community seems really cool. it's https://twitter.com/karenxcheng project

I saw Karen’s pitch with Paul Graham at this year’s Startup School and prior to that, saw her viral video (along with everyone else). I like the idea but video is such a high hurdle for most people. I’m curious to see how they reduce friction to create (both mentally and physically). The majority of people will be consumers of the content though so it may be lesser of a priority for them.

yea i think mobile would basically fix it (instagram video basically kills friction)
Ryan Hoover
Yes! Also check out tougher.me. It has some similarities. cc @karenxcheng

hi karen! how's the $1 challenge?
Ryan Hoover
Welcome, @karenxcheng! Perfect timing with New Years. When you created your epic, viral dance video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daC2EPUh22w), were you planning to build Give it 100 or did the idea come afterward?

Hey karen, what's the most dramatic improvement (aside from yourself) you've seen someone make in 100 days?
Karen X. Cheng
@Ryan - I got the idea after the dance video went viral, and a bunch of people emailed me who wanted to learn to dance. That's when I realized there's something magical about seeing something practice
Karen X. Cheng
@Lenny Cynthia's improvement is pretty dramatic, she is learning to walk again http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHSMUq0bDLg and http://giveit100/@cynthia

@karenxcheng - what are you plans for mobile?

Wow, @karenxcheng, so proud of you :-) There are people out there who say they want to change the world with their startup. You're actually living it. Cynthia's video is inspiring, I've watched it three times now.
Karen X. Cheng
Thank you so much, Ash :)

Ryan - we're looking at vine/instagram integration until we can build our own app. We are probably going to start raising a seed round soon so we can build an app.

Hey @KarenXCheng. Sweet app! My 100 day challenge is to learn Ukulele and record a collab with you. I've seen a video of you playing a guitar. I play guitar and piano as well (https://soundcloud.com/ramlijohn). Let me know if we can make it happen!

Congrats on getting into 500, @karenxcheng! I really enjoyed your video on getting rejected after your first application. I hope/expect you to be documenting your journey this summer. :)
