The wonderful folks at American Public Media’s American RadioWorks are looking for ClaimID users to appear in an hourlong documentary about online identity and self-marketing. This is a great chance to tell your story about online identity, as I know many of you have thought about this entensively.
If you’d like to appear in this documentary, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll pass your information along to the producer, so make sure you include a way to get in touch. Thanks!!!
Program Description: Design of Desire
An hour-long radio documentary on consumerism including a look at the new importance of online self-marketing
Half of Americaâ€™s online teens think the Internet has improved their relationships with their friends, according to a study by the Pew Internet and American Life Project. Young people say online identities, in particular, create a way for them to market themselves to their peers. They offer a place where teens can define themselves through bands, videos and photographs; some teens say the Internet frees them up to be more like their â€œtrue selves,â€ without worrying about how they look or are perceived in school.
As teens get older and apply for college admission or employment, online identities can be cast in a new light. American RadioWorks seeks individuals, roughly under the age of 35, for inclusion in a radio documentary. ARW is looking for those who have online identities (profiles, blogs, etc.) and who are using ClaimID. ARW prefers to start speaking with individuals before they begin using Claim ID, in order to follow them throughout their process of using the service.
American RadioWorks is the largest documentary unit in public radio. It creates documentaries, series projects, and investigative reports for the public radio system and the Internet. ARW is based at St. Paul, Minnesota, with staff journalists in Los Angeles and San Francisco, Calif., Boston. Mass., and Duluth, Minn.
