Location:Ann Arbor, MI
Skills Used: User Experience Research, Ethnographic Studies, Survey, Data Analysis
SI 500 is another core course within the Information Science degree. As a final research paper for the class, I decided to take a topic a bit close to home and look into how death and the electronic ghosts people leave behind affect us in the current age of social media. Surveying multiple groups, the goal was to think about what steps a modern company would have to take to aid its users when dealing with the inevitable deaths that will begin to accrue in their electronic, social lives.
