  1. So…this is a very rudimentary draft of an image that maps my personal location on the visitor/resident typology.
    I use the term ‘rudimentary’ because I anticipate that my interpretation of this concept will deepen, and as a result, the image will evolve. But not drastically. This is pretty much me, as I currently exist as the ‘dot’ in this continuum.
    It’s obvious that my engagement from an institutional level is minimal and very specific to: Internet searches, work email, skype and occasionally YouTube. None of this is surprising. Nor is the fact that the majority of my online interaction is expressed in the upper half of the quadrant.
    What did surprise me, however, based on the distinction between the visitor and resident influence (See the video: Just the Mapping) sub-personality is slightly offended. But I’m sure I’ll get over it.

  2. I also anticipate my own digital presence will evolve through this program and will have more opportunity to reflect on my contributions. It will be interesting to see how this fluctuates in the coming days, weeks, months and years!
