I was raised in an era where living off of the land and sea was a part of survival. At age 10 my digital map was documented from trips taken by foot, dogteam, snowmachine, and bush plane. 30 years later, the map in reference illustrates my travels from one location.
The digital world I live in today, requires a new navigation skill, at times more frustrating then referencing a river bend or a bluff at the edge of the ocean. It constantly changes and I find much of my personal activities in the digital world mix with professional obligations.
Starting from the Southeast, this area illustrates the various forms of communication for online activities. Northwest references the calm and mindless activities in my social digital world. The Northeast references activities of living, as a resident in the city I live in. The Southeast is my professional life, often requiring hours of personal time to keep it functioning. There is no longer a specified time of day designated for work hours. Work, with the availability of Digital access, has become 24-7.
Lastly, the center of it all is the cell phone, which has now become the main source of access to the digital world.
