Last day


Selfie in the last day in our iWeek about digital identity.

Blogging :

Enjoy blogging, you can share whatever you want, like tell people who are you, what do you like, where do you like to go. Best way to erase a bad or wrong post is posting possitive ones.

We often talk to students about ways in which to control their personal privacy. We talk about the repercussions of the over-sharing. We give them tips on how to best control their image within public spaces. We help them form the identity they want to form. However, what we often miss is the discussion about how we talk about others with our blogs, and how what we say may have a direct impact on someone else’s life.(

Diego Zavala – I´m a Mexican media researcher, I have been working with interactive documentary for a few years. Thanks to a national grant from my university, Tecnologico de Monterrey, I was able to go to New York as a visiting researcher at the Met Media Lab. I am part of a project led by Red Cross, Brown Institute at Columbia, and the Met to address climate change. The three main components of the proposal are to work with food, data visualization, and art from the permanent collection at the museum. My collaboration is to develop an interactive documentary about a navigational chart that is part if the AAOA exhibition. My last conference presentation was at Visible Evidence XXIII. The communication´s title was: “Maps, Data Visualization, and the Indexical Link in Web Documentaries”. I´m currently working on a paper about Mexican judicial system and documentary.
