I have compiled a list of possibly relevant websites and software that may help me with the Online Identity Share Project. Some are more relevant than others, but they are all pretty interesting.
Feel free to add to this list in the comments if you run across anything that is relevant.
- This is the official site for the living library project.
- This site about page state that they "explore new technologies, future communication environments, and their implications."
- They have strange aesthetics which give the sense that the site is striving for an Avant-garde design, yet it is slightly unnavigable. You have to stumble upon information rather than looking for something specific.
- The site is involve in social research and technology. I can probably find some socially relevant articles here.
- This is a semi-interesting article on the culture of file sharing: http://world-information.org/wio/readme/992003309/1166785452
- A site dedicated to the Swipe project, a performance art type/real-life bar that travels around N. America swiping drivers liscenses to raise awareness about the information the government and other agencies keep on you as an individual.
- Check out the Request Your Data tool which allows you to see what information companies are collecting about you.

- Individuals in my project could also be defined/categorized by their surroundings.
- The site offers a possible way for me to implement shared browsing.
- They do not seem to use the background web page for any purpose.

- The site uses existing social networks (gmail, facebook, digg...) and integrates them into a people sidebar.
- Users can drag and drop links, photos, and more to share with friends in their networks.
- The site is essentially a normal browser with plug-ins which integrate many social networking sites functionality.
- This of course is the very popular site for sharing bookmarks.
- Delicious began as a site for publicly storing bookmarks but became a popularity contest (similar to digg).
- The site facilitates sharing of one aspect of individuals browsing history, their favorite sites.
- The site creates a new way to search the web, via tags on popular bookmarks.
