Alexander Jackson Downing is known as the "father" of the American architectural pattern book.
Not an architect, nor a trained artist, Downing was an avid reader of British horticulture publications, some of which illustrated ideal houses for the country.
Name, address, and phone number are just the basics in a world where voluntarily posting self-authored content such as text, photos, and video has become a cornerstone of engagement in the era of the participatory Web.
The more content we contribute voluntarily to the public or semi-public corners of the Web, the more we are not only findable, but also knowable.
A projector or image projector is an optical device that projects an image (or moving images) onto a surface, commonly a projection screen.
Most projectors create an image by shining a light through a small transparent lens, but some newer types of projectors can project the image directly, by using lasers.
Younger users (under the age of 50) are more prone to self-searching than those ages 50 and older.
Men and women search for information about themselves in equal numbers, but those with higher levels of education and income are considerably more likely to monitor their online identities using a search engine.
The Proceedings of the ACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies (IMWUT) is a premier journal series for research relevant to the post-PC era.Internet users are becoming more aware of their digital footprint; 47% have searched for information about themselves online, up from just 22% five years ago.Unlike footprints left in the sand at the beach, our online data trails often stick around long after the tide has gone out.Through the British publications, Downing saw both how books could transmit design ideas in words and pictures, and how modest houses with Romantic Revival design gestures could form the basis for an improved American housing for its middle classes, particularly in rural and small town settings.To further that end, he published three important works: A treatise on the theory and practice of landscape gardening (first issued in 1841); Cottage residences (first published 1842); and The architecture of country houses (first issued in 1852).
