Our goal is simple, even if the task itself seems daunting: A day in the life of Madison.
Isthmus hopes to chronicle what happens on a typical day in Madison — big news, small details and everything in between — by collecting glimpses into the lives of the people who live, work and play here from 6 a.m. on Friday, September 21, to 6 a.m. on Saturday, September 22.
Isthmus reporters will be dispatched to write, take photos, tweet and/or capture video from around the city throughout that 24-hour period, but that will only scratch the surface of what’s happening, so we’re asking for your help.
Isthmus would love it if you would participate in this project — codename: #MyMadisonDay — by sharing what happens during a day in your life or the life of your business, organization, department, school or team. Consider this a license to capture a few (or seven or eight) glimpses of what happens on that day and share it with thousands of Isthmus readers. We hope that by doing so, in concert with a bunch of others in our network of contributors, we will create a very cool, fun and fascinating collection of observations from every walk of life, ordinary mixed right in with extraordinary.
How can you chip in? There are many ways.
Do you use Twitter? Simply use the hashtag #MyMadisonDay when tweeting. Photos encouraged!

YouTube videos are great. You can use the #MyMadisonDay hashtag there as well. Tweet a link, post it to our Facebook page or email it to email@example.com.

Invite your friends, family, coworkers to do the same!
We’ll pull all that great stuff into a live blog at isthmus.com, which will be updated throughout the entire 24-hour period. We’ll borrow heavily from that blog to pull together a huge package for the issue of Isthmus that hits the streets on September 27.
