Project brief

My final practical project for the TPIM module consists of two main parts. The first one is a website for a local networking group for people working or interested in digital industry (“InDigital.org”). The second part explores the idea of post-digital networking even further, and is an interactive graph, which is visual representation (a map) of my Facebook network.

Being interested in professional networking, I have decided to pursue my idea and set up my own networking group. “InDigital” has been founded to connect people with similar interests. The website has been built in WordPress. It was a challenge as to make it look the way I wanted to, I had to learn some basic HTML5 and CSS, which I haven’t used before.

In order to further explore the idea of post-digital networking, I have been looking at different ways of visualising and mapping networks. What I find fascinating about such graphics is that not only are they dots and nodes, but digital representation of the “real-life” human connections and relationships. I have come across various tools for representing social networks, and finally used Neo4j to create my own unique graphics. I have also written a tutorial for anyone who would like to use the tool n the future.
