Digital Dirt

“This Is Me”

There is a very interesting project being lead out of University of Reading’s OdinLab, called “This Is Me,” which aims

“…to help people learn about their Digital Identities (DI) by producing and testing learning materials for use by individuals and groups. As part of the project we are collecting people’s stories about their DI, and you are welcome to come on in and chat about what it means to you, how you manage your identity and how important other people’s web presence is to you.”

I encourage you to check it out. There are some really hilarious stories about peoples’ digital footprint (a.k.a. DI).  Plus they have a learning center where you can do a few exercises to discover the nation of your DI. Unfortunately the site navigation sucks and and the instruction for the exercises are not at all clear.

I’m quite happy to be discovering a lot  of new resources aimed at educating people on the impact of their Digital Dirt even though I believe at one point or another your digital footprint will bit you in the ass.
