Who are you? An Exploration of Identity at the Edge of Tech
The 2008 Online Journalism Class at the University of Western Ontario looks at how technology changes our identity and our idea of identity.
Are you facebook profile? The sum total of all your Twitter? Is your status message really your state of mind, your avatar how you really look? Do your Seesmic videos and You Tube clips capture the real you? Are your texts your thoughts? Your flickr pictures how you see the world? Your blog, your life? Really? Who are you?
This multi-part, multimedia series takes on the issue of identifying identity when human beings can engage in the real world and project themselves, or pieces of themselves into virtual worlds, virtual communities and virtual conversations with increasing ease.
Each episode will contain a podcast on the rabble podcast network, a video clip on rabbletv and rabble's You Tube channel and a feature story right here on rabble.ca. Look for new episodes each week over the next three months.
Who are we? We're over three dozen students in the Online Journalism program and the University of Western Ontario. We're learning to tell great stories, new ways. Hope you like these.
