CFP: Representations of Digital Identity (CSCW Workshop)

At Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) this year, i will be teaming up with two of my favorite colleagues (Michele Chang and Liz Goodman) to organize a workshop called “Representations of Digital Identity.”. We want to bring together interesting people working on how people represent and manage identity in a digital environment. We are looking for designers, technologists, theorists and other invested individuals.

A workshop of this type is where people working on the same problems come together to brainstorm and tackle confounding issues. For this workshop, we are asking people to submit sketches representing digital identity and discuss those in the context of the issues that interest them the most.

If you’re interested:
– Read the Call for Participation
– Check out the Proposal we submitted
– Ask questions or send submissions to cscw04-identity AT googlegroups DOT com by September 20

    Armed with poetry
    poets lurk
    streets and shoes
    skirts and sun
    poets lurk
    armed with poetry

    with lyre and
    rhythem
    poets yell into a
    sea of heads
    bobbing across
    concrete
    below the
    shadow of the
    all seeing buildings

    armed with poems poets lurk
    inside large rooms
    conventions and stalk
    political
    armed with poems
    words as pierceing
    bits of glass
    upon the skin
    of knowing

    the redhead persona of
    steping into a parade
    as man
    as women
    as machine

    hidden behind words
    poets lurk until
    the command of passion
    and sapphic singing
    lures to sleep
    hidden words that hurt
    biting into a self not
    seen within a mirror
    of reflections turned to words
    knowing

    that poets are armed with words…

    This sounds fascinating! It is reminiscent of personal photography- albeit not in the interactive way that that digital medium allows a user to be represented- but photography (similar to the web) is also communication medium, pretty low-tech tool, available to the mass worldwide market very directly linked with the concept of Identity. So I can’t help but think that we could also use more than a hundred year of cultural use of photography to help give us some understanding on how we will use these new tools to satisfy the similar human needs (assuming that our humanity has not changed since 😉

    Some examples:
    – Photo-mediated (Why do you prefer one picture of yourself over another one?)
    – Display-mediated (Will the picture of your niece at the park end up framed and in your living room, held by a magnet on the fridge door, or in a shoe box?)
    – Story/album-mediated (Is your vacation album as likely to include the group shot of seconds spent in front of an erupting Old Faithful, as much as the half-day spent dealing with the broken car on your way home?)
