The “What I…” Project I have created does not necessarily pertain to my reflections on “Selfies with a Social Conscience,” particularly because much of what I listen to is online and only accessible through the internet. While I could have taken selfies with my phone or laptop showing what I listen to, it would have been awkward, to say the least. This does introduce questions though about the way in which technology has transformed our audio and visual habits, changes that have paralleled in time with how technology has transformed our writing habits. If I was born around several years (if not decades) earlier, I would have taken pictures with CD albums and a radio. Nowadays, taking screenshots of what I listen to using my computer suffices. Much like Barron argues that the computer has evolved and shifted our writing, the computer has similarly shifted our musical and other auditory experiences.
The Selfie with a Social Conscience project is interesting because it has encouraged me to acknowledge the ways in which selfies are pivotal in revealing who you are. This exposure can translate into life opportunities—such as employment and marriage, as demonstrated with LinkedIn and Match.com. It also is a way to express yourself, as selfies are often used in blogs and art. Another example of how selfies are used is in personal and public websites for actors. Actors need personal websites to feature their portfolios, and actors also register for websites that help connect actors to cinematic projects.
