On Tuesday Dr. Sheffield went over a really cool power point on our digital identities. She started it out showing us a TED video basically about how easy it is for others to find us online. Then she talked about tracking and cookies. I learned that cookies are the digital codes stored in your browser. We also talked about the only way to completely opt out of tracking is to not get on your phone or internet at all. In today’s society, that is nearly impossible. So Dr. Sheffield went over ways to secure your information because there are password crackers that can guess common passwords up to 55 characters long in just seconds. She told us about many password schemas that can be used to ensure that nobody cracks your password. I thought that was very cool the way she makes her passwords having to do with information about astronauts. We talked about ORM which can make positive reviews for you and your site or company. We also talked about data after death. There is a site called ifidie.com where you can leave a special message to send on your social networks after you die. It is kind of creepy but I might would think about doing something like that. I really enjoyed the lecture this day. It informed me of a lot of tools on the web that I was unaware of. I also learned how to secure my passwords better to keep from being hacked into or tracked.
