so you may have already seen THIS. it is an installation at the MIT museum that apparently "demonstrates the computer's uncanny insights and its inadvertent errors" and causes us, "the viewer[,] to reflect on our current and future world, where digital histories are as important if not more important than oral histories, and computational methods of condensing our digital traces are opaque and socially ignorant."
thanks to the surprisingly large digital footprint of rachel caroline eaton- she of the zealous presbyterianism and genealogically obsessive descendants- this actually says very little about me that i can see. (i love my family, but come on.)
it did, however, inspire me to reflect on how U of C MIT people sound.
