Carlos Whittaker is one of the earliest people on my social graph. I was inspired by a video on his blog last week called My Day In 90 Seconds.
Earlier this week, I applied the concept to a business trip. Video embedded below.

Here's what's happening:
I learned how to use iMovie on the ATL-AUS flight and pieced this together in about 30 minutes. Filmed all of the segments using a loaned Nokia N95. You can see the first day standalone in 90 seconds, too.
If you get similarly inspired, let me know!
