This is the last set of interviews I’m doing before I concentrate solely on the my methodology chapter. There’s one interview from each age group.
The first, an elderly lady who retired a few years ago after spending time in a office job, has developed a passion for digital photography. She takes her camera around London two to three times a week and uploads them to a group on Flickr.
The second interview was of a young man in his mid-twenties who also takes photographs but also has a blog, Boidus, that he co-writes with a friend. He’s soon to be married to a woman who he met and has had correspondence with on the Web over the last year.
My nineteenth interview was down in south-west London with a 50 year old self confessed “stay-at-home-dad”. He makes lots of music and field recordings on his computer and shared them with friends and online communities using Soundcloud as a platform of choice (play one of his recordings below). This was a extremely interesting interview as, although he was very familiar with and experienced at creating digital content, he was also highly contemptuous of it too seeking to create analogue versions of online platforms.
