This section of the Web site is dedicated to a number of actual issues related to digital content.
I myself got interested in digital content information long time ago.
I listed below a selection of topics I wish to cover in this section.
- Digital Technologies of the Self. According to the philosopher Michel Foucault, digital technologies “permit individuals to effect by their own means or with the help of others a certain number of operations on their own bodies and souls, thoughts, conduct and way of being, so as to transform themselves in order to attain a certain state of happiness, purity, wisdom, perfection or immortality”.
- The Digital Self. Self revealing in the digital world. Digital transparency and Opacity. Living with some degree of digital transparency. What are the benefits and the disadvantages?
- Trust and Self-revealing risk. Trust in other people: Is it enhanced if participants live with online transparency (e.g. with a richer social media record) or not?
- Personal Intention in the digital world. Why do people use Social Networks? (e.g. Facebook). What is the intention? How can you define an intention in the digital world?
- Online Sociability. What is it? How to measure it (can it be measured?).
- Identity Gathering A new kind of collectors emerged on the Web: the collectors of digital artifacts and information.
- Social Networking practices. What are the norms in Social Networks? What is good and what is bad?
- Digital Publishers. Digital publishing, how does it relate to printed publishing?
- Web Technologies. What are the Web technologies that can be used to create and manage digital content?
Hope you`ll enjoy reading this section!
