  • Digital Life:Reminiscing, Remembering and Reflectingwith special thanks to Richard Banks, Microsoft Research CambridgeCharlene Zvolanek@char74charlene.zvolanek@akqa.com 1
  • The unexamined life is not worth living.-SocratesThis discussion is meant to foster thinking around how digital legaciesare being intertwined with physical ones, we might enable others toextract stories from the digital riches we generate in our lifetimes. 2
  • people collect many things that help themrecall and tell their life storiesartifacts are comforting memory triggers and provide insight into anindividual’s life- digital objects quickly outnumber physical ones- physical objects hold more sentimentality- digital objects are easier to generate (actively and passively)- physical objects are currently easier to examine and organize (in part due to low relative volume) 3
  • EMC/IDC study as of 2011 showed the world has generated1.8 trillion gigabytes of data stored in500 quadrillion “files”the volume of data created is more than doubling every 2 years source: http://www.emc.com/collateral/analyst-reports/idc-extracting-value-from- chaos-ar.pdf 4
  • http://brandonremler.blogspot.com/2011/04/concert-recording-with-playbook-tablet.htmlEMC/IDC study in 2011 showed:75% of the information in the digitaluniverse is generated by individuals90% of all data is unstructured source: http://www.emc.com/collateral/analyst-reports/idc-extracting-value-from- chaos-ar.pdf 5
  • http://awesome.good.is/transparency/web/1009/the-world-of-data/flat.htmlwe create as much information in two daysnow as we did from the dawn of manthrough 2003-Google CEO, Eric Schmidt source: http://techcrunch.com/2010/08/04/schmidt-data/ 6
  • http://www.zdnet.com/photos/life-tracking-tools-for-a-better-healthier-you-fuelband-fitbit-up-compared/life-tracking devices are adding personalbiometric data- personal informatics capabilities are being added to devices- samsung and others are working on mood detection tech source: http://phys.org/news/2012-04-samsung-patent- user.html 7
  • business is looking at how to leverage bigdata for profit and efficiencyhow can we design experiences that allowfamilies to curate vast digital legacies thatinclude big and deep data? 8
  • https://wikispaces.psu.edu/download/attachments/55443576/dataownership.pngwho owns the data and who will haveaccess to it are still being worked outbut imagine all your data was at your disposal and could bebequeathed to a trusted friend or family member (maybethrough a FOI request from the NSA data center in Utah). 9
  • what stories will your data tell about you?what might it look like to curate an experience?e.g. the Rimmer Experience - Red Dwarfcan we curate the files and data-points to help peopleexperience the parts we want them to?can we create experiences that encourage serendipitousdiscovery over dictated paths?how might the story creation process be made both personaland collective?how do we design digital systems that persist for the long term,both physically and digitally? 10
  • http://www.quora.com/How-does-a-Puli-seethen there’s the stuff we don’t wantpeople to seehow can we build systems that assign access in smart ways?how can we set rules about how and when our data is accessed? 11
  • people will mostly access and view files inyet-to-be-created interfaces http://marbl.library.emory.edu/ http://designreviver.com/ http:// www.meso.netemulators can provide access (like those used by Emory Libraryto display Salman Rushdie’s data from his Performa 5400).how can we prepare our content to be viewed in an entirelydifferent context? 12

(e.g. personal hologram) 13
  • http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/heirlooms/ http://1000timesyes.com/digital artifacts can have physicalmanifestationswhat data could be made more personal by creating physicalrepresentations of it? 14
  • sentiment analysis of comments posted by location on Haight Street (upper to lower) show people were more negative in lower Haight http://www.readwriteweb.com/hack/2012/03/can-data-tell-the-story-of-a-l.php data sets get more interesting when you overlay them with one another and can provide us with pictures of what a place or person was like at a given time 15

  • the distributed nature of data and atrophyof service providers makes wrangling ittough http://nubifer.files.wordpress.com/ 2011/08/open_cloud.jpghow can we design systems that know where an individual’sdata exists and how to assign the right people access to it?how can we design a data portability system to either collect orpoint to distributed data? 17

  • how do we want to be remembered?is that how we should be remembered?how do we know who will want to remember us?will a blend of our online and offline personalities shock thosewho only knew us in one or the other? 19
  • four strategies for preparing an estate inthe cloud- back up content as it is created- connect to disparate places where we keep things- move our content from place to place- create one central place where our content always lives 20
  • four estate in the cloud challenges.how can we design systems...- systems for backing up and preserving our content online thatdon’t in and of themselves feel as fragile as the services inwhich they persist?- systems that help us more easily keep track of the sites wecare about and also give us some sense of what we haveinvested in each?- systems that encourage content mobility as well as makecontent between services mesh comfortably?- a set of services that draw from and write to a place onlinethat truly belongs to me? 21
