When I sampled homepages of other students that took the same
class in the years before me originality of their homepage
was one of the most important aspects I was looking for.
I realized that I started to imagine the people that created these
pages. Interestingly enough the personalities I imagined were based
only on the way they created their hompages. The real person
might be completely different from the virtual person created by my
projection of their cyberhome. It seamed a lot like imagining a person
that you don't know by seeing their house and the way it is set up.
Therefore I would like to give an accurate projection of my personality
by creating my hompage. For many people this hompage will be the only
contact or information they will ever have about me. It is wired to imagine that
maybe my grandchildren will read this report. They be able to see some
Aspect of my life that has long gone by.
It is almost like video
taping one's mind. Ideas, thoughts and attitudes are stored in the page.
When people go through different generations of this curriculum they will
be able to see and possibly study the differences and trends not only
in ideas but also in technology. This is a brand new way of communicating between
generations long after they have moved on with their lives or even
passed away. I am sure many of the hompages are not serviced or changed
anymore. The internetsurfer however does not know if they are or not.
It would be very interesting for myself to revisit the page a while from now to.
