  • Title: a bitty auto-biography / a smattering of facts
    Descriptive info: a bitty auto-biography / a smattering of facts.. (I decided to write a small biography of myself for those who are curious.. I figured it would be a bit more accurate this way.. These are the events that i can think to highlight.. ).. I was born on Thanksgiving Day (November 24) 1977 in Altoona, Pennsylvania.. My birth name was danah michele mattas (spelled all funky because my mother loved typographical balance).. Two years later, my brother Ryan was born.. My parents divorced when i was five and my mother, brother and i set off for York, Pennsylvania.. My mother re-married when i was in the third grade and we moved to Lancaster.. Shortly afterwards, all of us changed our name to Beard.. My mother and step-father divorced when i was in the 9th grade, but we stayed in Lancaster.. In college, i changed my last name to boyd to honor my grandfather.. When doing the legal paperwork, i switched back to a lower-cased style to reflect my mother's original balancing and to satisfy my own political irritation at the importance of capitalization.. I graduated Manheim Township High School as co-valedictorian with 2 other classmates.. In high school, i played drums in marching band, headed up the literary magazine, did theater, threw javelin and disc, edited the newspaper, did Model UN, and got involved in various other activities.. I volunteered at the March of Dimes and did AIDS education.. I was not particularly well-behaved and i missed far more than my fair share of school days (translation: i was bored out of my mind).. I won $1500 in Junior Miss - a talent competition (beauty contest) that my friend made me enter on a dare.. I worked at Subway because my mother wanted me to learn why i was getting an education (a decision that i still respect).. I attended all sorts of summer school programs, including Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences, Space Academy, and Phillips Exeter Academy.. I was at Clinton's first inauguration through a program for smart politically engaged students.. I broke my neck (C2/C3) when i was 16, forcing me to stop playing sports and ending my childhood dream of going to the Naval Academy to become an astronaut.. My brother introduced me to computers when i was younger and i thought they were lame.. When he got an EPIX account and started talking to people, i became curious.. My brother introduced me to IRC and Usenet and there are plenty of embarrassing messages there under pseudonyms.. Although my brother showed me this world when i was a freshman (1992), i did not really participate actively until my junior year.. Yet, once i got involved, i was utterly amazed at the connections that could be made and i started conversing with strangers about sexuality, identity and all sorts of teenage angst.. I created my first webpage in 1995 and it morphed into the Ani DiFranco lyrics page that still exists today.. I was obsessed with music starting in middle school when i was introduced to classic rock.. Throughout high school, i listened to ska, alternative and some punk rock.. My cousin (mother's best friend's son) was in a band and used to take me to various local shows.. Two very memorable shows at the Chameleon were Bad Religion and Gwar (where i was hoisted over the bar by the bartender because i was so little).. My classic rock interest morphed into an appreciation for bands from the 60s and 70s who were still jamming and this passion led me to see the Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd, amongst others.. Through Sarah McLachlan (and the various dykes i met online), i started developing an obsession for female singer/songwriters, leading me to a Tori Amos concert and an Ani DiFranco one.. My obsession with Ani was immediate and persistent.. I did not really get into electronic music until college, although i attended a few raves late in high school.. My years in high school were not all rosy and many of my peers did not make it through as unscathed as i did.. I attribute my survival to three things: 1) my mother (roots); 2) the Internet (wings); 3) a misogynistic classmate (a challenge).. My mother was unbelievably supportive, even when terrible things were happening all around.. While we would fight, she was always there to bail me out of trouble, give me necessary advice and keep me grounded.. She was amazing at parenting through support rather than through rules (because i always broke any that she set down anyway).. The Internet opened the door of possibilities to me.. I found other smart kids year round (not just when i went off to smart kids camp).. I found ideas, colleges.. Strangers taught me so much about the world and about myself.. And then there was my classmate.. In the 9th grade, he told me that girls can't do science and that they didn't let girls into governor's school.. We brawled on many occasions and i still smile when i think of the day that i punched him in the face.. Yet, his antagonism gave me goals.. I was determined to prove him wrong over and over again.. I went to Brown University because it seemed like the most liberal place that still had a science program.. I intended to study math, but i was randomly assigned an advisor - Andy van Dam.. Not understanding the social protocol, i marched right into his office and told him to advise me.. His response was something like who the hell are you? I did not know that people were terrified of him or that he was a pretty famous academic.. He told me to take CS15, his introductory computer science course.. I don't remember how we bonded, but i started working for him during my first semester (while also working as computer tech support).. I started TAing my second semester.. I hated my first math class, mostly due to my teacher's inflexibility after i lost the ability to write (or type) because of my carpal tunnel.. I quickly decided that math was not going to be my thing, but i was absolutely in love with computer science.. Besides, i figured that i  ...   my world began unraveling, in part connected to the unraveling of those around me.. One of the few things that kept me grounded was a fantastic class on social networks, taught by Keith Hampton and a legal class at Harvard taught by Jonathan Zittrain.. I began obsessing over social networks and privacy and what it meant to think about email networks.. I roped Jeff Potter, a dear friend from Brown, into helping me visualize social networks, thus beginning the Social Network Fragments project which was eventually shown in a Soho art gallery in New York.. My Master's thesis on faceted id/entity (advised by Judith, Henry and Genevieve) brought together all of my varied interests and graduate school explorations.. After i got my Master's in Media Arts and Sciences in the summer of 2002, i drove around the country with two friends, attending all sorts of psytrance festivals and Burning Man.. By this time, i was working 20 hours a week for V-Day.. Although i had been to Burning Man before (first: 1998), i did not technically have the time off.. Throughout our travels, i had been working on my laptop and jacking in whenever possible.. Thanks to WiFi at Center Camp (and a satellite phone), i launched the 2002 campaigns from the desert.. After the summer travels, i continued to wander around visiting people, working for V-Day by jacking in from wherever.. In November, Andy van Dam tracked me down and told me to go back to graduate school.. I told him i was moving to San Francisco and he told me he knew people there.. A few days later, i got a call from him telling me that he had contacted Peter Lyman and i was to meet with him the moment i got to San Francisco.. To make matters worse, my friend Alessandro Acquisti (a PhD at SIMS at the time) set up appointments for me, forcing me to go and check it out.. Peter and i got along immediately and i decided to apply.. Since the deadlines had passed, i had to run around quickly and i remember taking the GREs in Pennsylvania on New Year's Eve.. I landed in San Francisco for good in January, still working for V-Day.. I got involved in False Profit, a San Francisco urban tribe full of smart people who liked to dance.. While i was traveling, a friend of mine from AOL sent me an invitation to look at Friendster because he knew i was obsessed with social networks.. I did and was intrigued.. When i got to San Francisco, i contacted Jonathan Abrams and we met early in 2003 (when he told me that i was kinda smart for a chick).. Even though i was not too impressed by Abrams, i started blogging about what i was seeing on Friendster.. As it took off, i became the person that folks went to to understand the cultural dynamics.. In June, Tribe.. net hired me to run some focus groups and help them understand how to design the site to attract the kind of people that were obsessed with Friendster.. I spent the entire summer interviewing people, collecting data and writing about Friendster.. In the fall of 2003, i started my PhD at the School of Information (Management and Systems) at Berkeley and while i didn't intend to keep studying Friendster, i found myself doing so.. I also found myself getting connected to the social software community and advising on all sorts of social technologies.. My work on Friendster got me invited to numerous conferences and made me an expert for the press.. On Thanksgiving Day 2003, the New York Times ran a profile on me and my work.. Committed to work on something else, i started studying blogging and took an internship at Google to do an ethnographic study of blogging for Blogger.. I stayed there for a year before taking an internship at Yahoo! Research Berkeley to study social media more broadly (and with a more publishing-friendly research bent).. Although i met Mimi Ito briefly at a conference in the spring of 2003, i was terrified of her.. In fall of 2003, various technologists were trying to get me to meet Joi Ito.. Uninterested in venture capitalists, i balked.. until i learned that he was the brother of Mimi.. I wrote him a ridiculous note, stating that i didn't know who he was, but that his sister was a goddess.. We quickly became friends and Joi connected me to Mimi by having us both work on a project with Nokia.. Through some set of events, my advisor (Peter Lyman), Mimi, and Michael Carter started collaborating to get a Macarthur grant to study digital youth.. For the project, i wanted to study how teens were dealing with unknown audiences.. As we were applying for the grant, MySpace took off.. After having been accused of affecting my Friendster data, i decided to lay low while watching MySpace grow.. I didn't blog about it or talk to the press until News Corp bought it for an obscene amount.. At that point, i figured that i couldn't influence its growth curve and i started documenting some of my observations.. Unfortunately, i hadn't predicted the predator paranoia and have been swept right back into being a media pundit while still trying to do academic work.. And that's where we're at today (late 2006).. Oh.. one other thing.. about the fuzzy hat.. I started wearing strange clothes in high school.. First, i wore PJs and slippers and then it got a bit more eccentric.. In college, i became obsessed with fuzzy things and had all sorts of rave wear.. I shaved my head my freshman year, added all sorts of piercings and dyed my hair every color imaginable.. In San Francisco, i bought a bunch of clothing to attend Burning Man, including the white fuzzy hat.. In the summer of 2003, it was bloody cold and i started wearing the hat all the time.. It has kinda stuck, particularly since i'm always freezing.. When i spoke at Etech in 2004, i was very sick and so i wore the hat while on stage.. Since then, it has become a sort of trademark, for better or worse..

  • Title: danah michele boyd
    Descriptive info: danah michele boyd.. what's in a name?.. Born: 'Danah Michele Mattas'.. My mother added the 'h' because she liked the balance of it - danah balances quite well.. My mother remarried when i was young, so i added the name 'Beard' to the end of my name, making my childhood- college name 'Danah Michele Mattas Beard'.. In high school, after my mother and stepfather divorced, i started the process of changing my name to my maternal grandfather's - 'Boyd'.. I wanted his name because it represented my family, my culture, my heritage; i wanted his name out of respect.. Did you know that if you want to change your name and you aren't getting married, the authorities are not so thrilled? Anyhow, it took me many years, but in the summer of 2000, i finally had legal paperwork acknowledging my name as i saw fit:.. No, i did not forget to capitalize that, but i've quickly learned that most people don't appreciate my decision to leave the capitalization out of my name.. There are a lot of reasons that i got rid of the capital letters in the final name change, some personal and some political.. First, there's my mother's original desire to have balance and my adult appreciation of that (as a child, i was just cranky that i could never find anything with my name on it).. danah.. balances;.. Danah.. does not.. In fact, my entire name balances quite conveniently, in all of its forms:.. danah michele mattas beard boyd.. There's something elegant about that.. There's also the political.. I was always bothered by the fact that the first person singular pronoun is capitalized in english - i always thought it was quite self-righteous.. Or, as Douglas Adams noted, Capital letters were always the best way of dealing with things you didn't have a good answer to.. Ever since i was a kid, i was told that the world does not revolve around me,  ...   of importance - it is referring to me, right? I thought an attempt at minimalizing the individualization could start at home.. But, this led me on a mental tangent - What's in a name? What's its worth? Why is it so valuable that it is to be capitalized? Down this path, i started thinking about names as descriptors versus separate entities.. Isn't a name simply another unique adjective for me? A label? I am not my name; my name is simply another descriptor of me.. Should i weight that descriptor as anything more valuable than the other adjectives used to describe me? Obviously, i care about my name - i've gone out of my way to change it too many times to suggest otherwise.. But do i believe that capitalization shows the appropriate value?.. But that's exactly it - it's.. my.. name and i should be able to frame it as i see fit, as my adjective, not someone else's.. Why must it follow some New York Times standard guide for naming? The words that i choose to describe myself should be framed in writing and in speech in a way that feels as though i own them, as though i can relate to them.. This is not to say that i wanted a unique symbol to stand for my name, simply that i wanted to write it in a fashion that showed the beauty of my mother's consideration.. Of course, as i get older, i end up having a deep engrained individualization of my name.. I really don't like when people remove the 'h' or capitalize my name - it's not how i've chosen to identify.. With all of these thoughts in mind, i signed my new name change papers simply as i wanted to label myself, with an aesthetic appreciation for the spelling of my name, and with a unique flair that allowed me to truly hold on to my name as my own:..

  • Title: danah boyd
    Descriptive info: kubla khan.. by samuel coleridge.. In Xanadu did Kubla Khan.. A stately pleasure-dome decree:.. Where Alph, the sacred river, ran.. Through caverns measureless to man.. Down to a sunless sea.. So twice five miles of fertile ground.. With walls and towers were girdled round:.. And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,.. Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;.. And here were forests ancient as the hills,.. Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.. But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted.. Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!.. A savage place! as holy and enchanted.. As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted.. By woman wailing for her demon-lover!.. And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,.. As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,.. A mighty fountain momently was forced:.. Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst.. Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail,.. Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher's flail:.. And  ...   far.. Ancestral voices prophesying war!.. The shadow of the dome of pleasure.. Floated midway on the waves;.. Where was heard the mingled measure.. From the fountain and the caves.. It was a miracle of rare device,.. A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice!.. A damsel with a dulcimer.. In vision once I saw:.. It was an Abyssinian maid,.. And on her dulcimer she played,.. Singing of Mount Abora.. Could I revive within me.. Her symphony and song,.. To such a deep delight 'twould win me,.. That with music loud and long,.. I would build that dome in air,.. That sunny dome! Those caves of ice!.. And all who heard should see them there,.. And all should cry, Beware! Beware!.. His flashing eyes! His floating hair!.. Weave a circle round him thrice,.. And close your eyes with holy dread,.. For he on honey-dew hath fed,.. And drunk the milk of Paradise.. home..

  • Title: "We Googled You: Should Fred hire Mimi despite her online history?"
    Descriptive info: We Googled You: Should Fred hire Mimi despite her online history?.. Case Commentary.. June 2007.. Citation:.. 2007.. We Googled You: Should Fred hire Mimi despite her online history? Case Commentary,.. , June.. This is my response to Diane Coutu's case student.. To read the complete case study with other respondents' commentary, you will need to order the June 2007 issue from.. Because this case is the first.. Interactive Case Study.. case.. is now online without the responses.. Background:.. What follows is my response to Diane Coutu's We Googled You case study where Fred is trying to decide whether or not to hire Mimi after one of Fred's co-workers googles Mimi and finds newspaper clippings about Mimi protesting Chinese policies.. Given the case study, we were then asked, should Fred hire Mimi despite her online history? To fully understand my response requires reading the.. original case.. (which I'd encourage) but I still felt that it was important to make my response available even if the complete context is missing.. I just celebrated my ten-year blogging anniversary.. I started blogging when I was 19, and before that, I regularly posted to public mailing lists, message boards, and Usenet.. I grew up with this technology, and I'm part of the generation that should be embarrassed by what we posted.. But I'm not those posts are part of my past, part of who I am.. I look back at the 15-year-old me, and I think, My, you were foolish.. Many of today's teens will also look back at the immaturity of their teen years and giggle uncomfortably.. Over time, foolish digital pasts will simply become part of the cultural.. fabric.. Young people today are doing what young people have always done: trying to figure out who they are.. By putting themselves in public for others to examine, teens are working through how others' impressions of them align with their self-perceptions.. They adjust their behavior and attitudes based on the reactions they get from those they respect.. Today's public  ...   has become both a place for friends and a space to seek attention.. So, what does all this imply for the company in this case? Many young people have a questionable online presence.. If Hathaway Jones doesn't want to hire these people, it'll miss out on the best minds of my generation.. Bright people push the edge, but what constitutes the edge is time dependent.. It's no longer about miniskirts or rock and roll; it's about having a complex digital presence.. Naturally, there'll always be a handful of young people who manage to go through adolescence and early adulthood without any blemishes on their record.. Employers need people who play by the rules, but they also need creatives.. Mimi is a creative, and for the job Fred is trying to fill, a traditionalist just won't do.. Fred should listen to his own instincts and hire Mimi.. I'd advise him to open a conversation with her immediately so that they can strategize together about how to handle potential challenges posed by employees' online practices.. I think Fred will learn a lot from that experience.. My generation isn't as afraid of public opinion as his was.. We face it head-on and know how to manage it.. We digitally document every love story and teen drama imaginable and then go on to put out content that creates a really nuanced public persona.. If you read just one entry, you're bound to get a distorted view.. That's why I would also advise Mimi to begin creating her own Google trails.. She should express her current thoughts on China, reflecting on how she has fine-tuned her perspective over the years.. Part of living in a networked society is learning how to accessorize our digital bodies, just as we learn to put on the appropriate clothes to go to the office.. danah m.. boyd (dmb@ischool.. berkeley.. edu) is a doctoral candidate at the University of California, Berkeley, and an adviser to major media corporations..
