Would You Give Up Total Privacy For 20 Days?

Forget online privacy: The 20 Day Stranger app doesn't even pretend we keep our private lives hidden.

Imagine giving a stranger access to your every move, your every thought and encounter, for 20 days. 

It's like a volunteering for a new version of "The Truman Show," except now we've become so immune to sharing our personal lives that there's actually an app that encourages this. 

Folks behind 20 Day Stranger, from the brain trust at MIT, want volunteers to share their lives through the app

"For 20 days, you and a stranger will experience the world in your own way, together. You'll never know who it is or exactly where they are, but we hope it will reveal enough about someone to build your imagination of their life ... and more broadly, the imagination of strangers everywhere."

Sure, when you put it that way, it sounds exciting and thought-provoking. But would you put your life, the good, the bad and inevitably the boring, on display for a stranger?
