- Browse your own internet history and select a portion that you believe tells a story about you. Take a neat screenshot (three-four screens maximum) that will be easy for me to place in a post.
- Ensure that you blur out all names of individuals who are not public figures, otherwise your selection will not be chosen. (If you wish to blur out the actual names and write “Ex” or “Mom” or a generic identifier so your story makes sense, please feel free to do that.)
- Send your screenshot(s) to email@example.com or upload them below. Only include your age, city/town, and state. Names will not be published. This is entirely anonymous.
- Wait and see if your selection is chosen.

- The most common misconception is that your browsing history is boring. When looking through yours, consider how it might be intriguing to people who don’t know you.
- It doesn’t have to be the raunchiest portion of your history. Porn habits are interesting, but they aren’t the only interesting set of sites.
- The posts that work best are those that the readers have to analyze. If there is a slight puzzle involved (i.e., “Why is he looking up stair tread and Alzheimers?”) you will be more likely to have your submission posted.
- If it makes you feel more comfortable, send it from whatever old AOL email address that you have. I will not publish names, though, so really–don’t worry.
In the era of “Facebook creeping,” Yahoo Answers, and webcam jobs, the cultural space of the internet enables users to explore a realm of their identities that may never be revealed in other areas of their lives. If they choose, the Internet allows them to gradually establish a duality of identity.
Our internet history can often be the antithesis of the face we show the world.
We all talk about how much porn we watch. We all talk about the stupid questions we ask Mother Google. We all talk about how we diagnose our own terminal illnesses from a quick WebMD search.
Now, it’s time to show. On the platform that is the intersection of art, social media, and storytelling.
