This week in class we’ll explore the related concepts of search and digital identity. What is your definition of digital identity? How important is it — for students, for academics, for IT professionals — to be aware of and proactive about our digital identities? The article Breaking Bread, Breaking Digital Dualism by Zeynep Tufekci (@techsoc) poses some interesting questions about our digital and real life identities. Please read this before class.
Then take 5.5 minutes to view the amusing and amazing video I Know What You Did Five Minutes Ago by Tom Scott – a great introduction to considering online search, identity and privacy.
