Many of us spend hours per day on the internet. Do we have a map or a model in our head? Do we know where we are in it?
Kevin Kelly’s Internet Mapping Project asks people to draw and share their map:
The internet is vast. Bigger than a city, bigger than a country, maybe as big as the universe. It’s expanding by the second. No one has seen its borders.
And the internet is intangible, like spirits and angels. The web is an immense ghost land of disembodied places. Who knows if you are even there, there.
Yet everyday we navigate through this ethereal realm for hours on end and return alive. We must have some map in our head.
This is an activity you should do as a drawing of the way you see the internet (personally). With a pen or pencil (or crayon) Download the map template (PDF), print it out, and draw your map. Optionally share it with Kelly at the address provided on it.
To respond as a DDA, take a photo of your map, and tweet it out as described below.
