  3. (1) Context: Ends of Identity? What happens in web presence/ self-presentation / ‘Identity 2.0’ style research when agency becomes a variable?Before (online) agency: before birth, until the ‘reigns’ of online identity tools and performances are inherited?After (online) agency: who looks after online traces of self once the self they refer to dies?Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J

  7. (2) Who Do You Think You Are? (2.0!) BBC series exploring history via personal genealogical narratives of celebrities. Tiny fragments of information speak loudly. Reminder that people = data long before digital databases. However, digitisation leads to unprecedented searchability. What would WDYTYA 2.0 look like, once today’s viewers become dust?Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J

  18. Implications? Social implies conversation (considered ephemeral) but media implies content (which persists). Privacy is often presumed and ‘experienced’ but not technically the case. Interface Occlusion: hard to imagine mobile apps as public web material. Thus when personal data is about broader contexts (eg families, not just individuals), the utility and persistence of data matters even more. Parental social media (over-)sharing both persists and frames children’s identities online.Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
  19. But, at the other end … Are personal conversations (email) and other social media (photos, videos) owned by the individual? ‘Digital estates’ an emerging topic of interest and deeply unclear in law. Corporate policies stress individual privacy and agency, with varying responses to users’ deaths. For example, what happens when a loved one or business partner desperately needs details in a recently departed person’s email account?Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J

  25. Why? It’s hard to sell ads to dead people.Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
  26. Looking forwards We need to consider … 1. What information do we want to persist (for ourselves and others we converse with and about). 2. Who else should (or could) have access to ‘my data’ once I’m dead? 3. Should corporations decide what material is deleted after someone dies? (Should my YouTube videos have to disappear if someone closes my Gmail account after I’m dead)? 4. What policies do we need to distinguish personal information we want to erase from material of historical or other significance?Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
