Persistent Data Confidante (2001)

by 1000004

Use this digital confidante to anonymously confess your hidden secrets. You will receive a secret in return...

Full Description

Persistent Data Confidante is an online public service allowing for the anonymous transfer of secrets/confessions. Once participating parties tell the "confidante" their secret, they receive a confession from another anonymous user with similar interests. The secrets are then rated by the participants. Each secret's "popularity" or intrigue will increase its probability of re-telling the future -- thus the best secrets will "live on" while the more banal will "die-off."

The points of reference for the work are at once Artificial Life, present-day confessional talk show culture, and current internet national policies.
