Guest blog: Dear iPhone Girl

Here’s another excellent example of journal writing from the Exeter Geography module behind our website. At the start of the module, we ask the students to add to their phone homescreens this photo of an Apple factory worker which, it seems, was accidentally left on an iPhone bought in 2009. The person who found this and four other photos posted them online and the quest to find out who she was, why photos of her were on that phone, and what would happen to her after they went pubic went viral (as documented on our followthethings.com page). We ask our students to keep her photo on their homescreens until the end of the module, for almost 4 months. What can happen to you when she looks at you every time you look at your phone, wherever you go? Sophie Woolf explains… to the person who became known as ‘iPhone Girl’.

‘Behind the screen’: now on demand

There are a lot of follow the thing films that we’re looking forward to watching. We’ve seen the trailers, checked the websites, read the facebook posts, and we wait…

We found out today that this one is now available on demand, although not (we then found out) in the UK. So we’re watching the trailer again, and asking anyone who can watch the whole film on demand, or who has seen it at a festival, to tell us about it! We’re looking forward to the DVD release. This looks awesome!
