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.

3rd Day (Wednesday)


Celebrating that our # is one of the most popular at national level


For the third day we learned about visitors and residents.(info from:

Visitor: When in Visitor mode, individuals decide on the task they wish to undertake. For example, discovering a particular piece of information online, completing the task and then going offline or moving on to another task.

Resident: When in Resident mode the individual is going online to connect to, or to be with, other people. This mode is about social presence.

Interview: I interviewed a student of tec de mty, I can´t publish the audio because he asked me not to publish it, but he telled me that it is ok if I share his ideas with my own words.

I asked him about the what social media he uses, we told that he uses whattsapp, facebook, instagram,snapchat and twitter.

2nd Day (Tuesday)

For the second day we are going to have 4 experts interacting with us about digital identity.

We learned about identity thats why we did the photo safari were we took photos that describes us. (identity)

Our 4 speekers will be :

-Laura Gogia

-Lee Skallerup

-Alan Levine

-Amy Burvall


What we learned:

Your identity is defined by want you do and other pleaple see you doing. Some times we fill more comfortable about digital identity than our social identity, because in your digital identity is more objective, people think about what they see, in person things can change because the words can get different meanings depending your posture, tone or rithym of your voice.

Once you have defined your identity and start blogging or posting is very important to have people that support your identity. You may look to stay connected with persons that have similiar interest.

When you post about things you like or your interest, you have to be carefull and see what you post, specially if it is about other person.
