Deliverable

You are what you … think, eat, buy, walk, write, read, browse, listen to, collect… While do these activities you create or run across their traces in: shopping lists, receipts, emails, chats, browser history, maps of your location, selfies, etc.You’ll be asked to assemble some of these traces and build your weblog with them, in order to give the world an idea of whom you are (or choose to be). Every week you’ll add more traces and grow your weblog In addition you’ll have to make decisions on how these traces are communicated visually.
