    Recording Ourselves

    Vsauce! Kevin here. My image and voice recorded, backed up, uploaded and saved…forever. Your cat photos, political arguments, the first private message you sent your future husband or wife, your comments on this video – authenticated, labeled, and recorded. Somewhere. For as long as someone is around to keep the lights on. For the first time in human history. Ordinary people will never be forgotten. At least half of what makes you – you. In Documenting Individual Identity, Jane Caplan explains identity as having two parts. There’s the subjective you, the “self-same.” You know who you are because you are you. You have your memory, which Oscar Wilde called, “…the…

    Meet the Infamous Debt Collectors of Indonesia

    If I had the money, I would pay it. Why would I… Yes, you have to pay! You have to pay. It’s your responsibility! But right now I really have no money. Please, don’t talk to me like I’m here to extort you for money! No, I’m here to make you pay your debts! -I know, sir. I know. -You must change your mindset.

    Advocate for social justice, freedom of movement and children’s rights #351 Ilona

    I worked for a comms agency that’s worked with the European Delegation as Slovenia was preparing to join the EU. We had a referendum of our own and it was the vast majority of people, I think about 89%, voted to join the EU. And so I really grew to believe in the dream of why Europe had been set up, or the European Union had come about as a way of integrating countries. I came to London originally to study, I did Social Psychology, and I was interested in a career in a social justice organisation, particularly working with children and young people. We’re doing a lot at the…
