The Chaos of Personal Digital Archiving

It uses only simple visualization with bar charts and Venn diagrams, but Dog House Diaries cogently shows the problem with the lack of standards and app/context proliferation when it comes to keeping track of your personal digital resources. Think about where you keep your:

  • Photos
  • Documents
  • Music
  • Video
  • TV
  • Messages
  • Friends (where you interact with them digitally)

I wonder if doing this kind of self-assessment is a useful assignment for our courses... maybe a two-person assignment where each person makes the assessment and then they jointly reflect?
