If Facebook isn’t already enough, Fritha Hookway takes us to the Museum of Me, a virtual museum where you are the star of your own hall of fame.
Ah, sweet self indulgence at its best. I swear, ever since Facebook became a daily fixture in most of our lives, the number of self shots circulating the web (gawd forbid, the mirror ones) has absolutely sky rocketed. So really, it was only a matter of time before someone decided that creating an online museum that journeys through your life would get absolutely lapped up. Narcissism-esque and all.
The Museum of Me website calls it a “visual archive of your social life”. By allowing data to stream from your Facebook to their site, it creates a virtual tour of all of your profile pictures, personal photos, videos and check ins. Basically, anything you have posted to your wall is dredged up and included in your very own exhibition. Just another eerie reminder that once you post something to Facebook, it’s going to get locked away in Zuck’s records, probably forever.
Intel’s application is not publicly shared though, so although it does seem a little digi-creepy, it really is only accessing information you’ve already pushed out via your page.
If you haven’t tried it already, Intel’s Museum of Me is definitely a bit of fun. It does a pretty cool job of collecting info and doling it out in a creative way. And, like I said, if you’ve ever been guilty of the old selfy upload (yes, you, don’t lie), it’s pretty guaranteed that you’ll enjoy a whole exhibition dedicated to yours truly.
