Welcome to the session! We're keen to connect with all of you about the topic of digital identity and the wide range of very interesting questions about it.
This week our theme focuses on us and our digital identities. We'd like to get things rolling by asking everyone to engage in two activities.
Visit MIT's Personas, part of the Metropath(ologies) exhibit at the MIT Museum. This site "creates a data portrait of one's aggregated online identity. In short, Personas shows you how the Internet sees you." Just enter your name and see what you find out about yourself.
Take a look at
Questions to Consider
- How does Personas represent you on the Internet? What/who is included? What/who is missing?
- "You are what you share." What do you think about this statement from the Leadbeater video? Is this an ideological position? (Thinking about Norm Friesen's work here). What are the implications related to digital identity?
