Persona(s)lly speaking

This is fun. From the Personas web site:

Personas is a component of the Metropath(ologies) exhibit, currently on display until Sept 09 at the MIT Museum by the Sociable Media Group from the MIT Media Lab. It uses sophisticated natural language processing and the Internet to create a data portrait of one’s aggregated online identity. In short, Personas shows you how the Internet sees you.

Naturally I had to find out how the internet sees me. Click on the thumbnail to see the image.  charitysnet

See that big orange bar? Actually, it’s the biggest bar, and it’s books. Personally, I think the labels should match the bars, making books into BOOOOOOKS!!!!! I’m not sure where the yellow bar (sports) is coming from. The rest, except for religion, makes sense. (Religion? Have I ever talked about religion? I doubt it.)

Give it a try!

  1. The sports I can sort of see (football! swimming! camping!), but I’m with you on the religion issue: where did that come from? or management? I would have thought a larger bar for family, too, but maybe that’s just my affection for the photos you’ve posted over the years.

    This didn’t work so well for me: there was no trace of me under my married name; and apparently there’s someone else with my maiden name who is heavily involved with law & government… it dramatically skewed my results: something like 85% represented by management, committees, and legal, and a mere 15% assigned to movies.
