The Challenge: All your digital and online interactions are little pieces of you – gigabytes and megabytes – sent out into the world that create a larger cyber representation of who you are, what you like, and how you live. As soon as you log on, sign in, or create anything on the web, the material is contributing to an ever-evolving digital identity. Each account is like an alter ego in which you, through a screen, interact with others and send a piece of yourself out far beyond your physical presence.
In this digital identity project, you and your team will track where you go digitally and for how long, over a five-day time period; articulate the data mathematically and graphically; and then create a visual and creative technological self-portrait of your digital identity to present to your teammates. You think online personality quizzes deliver truth? No. But mathematics does.
