Digital footprints

Project Organisation: 
Project is Active: 

This is an exploration of digital footprints as a way of demonstrating competence (especially in emerging areas which lack the easy reference points of academic accreditation, military rank, and similar traditional evidence of position and reputation).

Dadamac's Posterous

Project Organisation: 
Project is Active: 

It is an alterative space for quickly publishing content on the web. Orignally used for open letters and things that didn't have an obvious "place" within

The initiators:

This is something that is "me on my own" (Pamela McLean)

The backstory:

Dadamac's Posterous is partly an experiment with public-space and private-space. It's also an early attempt to bring more of my interests together in one place. Posterous is a wonderful middle way between a blog and an email (and is evoivng further over time).
