A visual understanding, week 4

From an earlier post:
- plot examples onto spaces in this map (ACTION ITEM FOR MONDAY)

One of the things I hope to do with my capstone, regardless of what I research is to inform some opportunity for change. I believe one of the best ways of change is through the actions of individuals. So most of my thoughts and diagrams will include the role of the self in hopes of identifying problem spaces I can address with my capstone that will produce value immediately due to its accessibility and actionability.

So I want to examine and map out the role of the self, or any individual:
- by "social space" I mean physical space

Continuing with the dichotomy of self vs. other (not self), I attempted to illustrate how things (messages, actions, paths of engagement) are interpreted through reputation, one's view of other's and other's view of one's. I need to think a bit more about this, but I think this could help examine the question of how things stay legit, especially in terms of movement from under--> above-ground.

I found this chart, which is interesting in terms of particpation & scenes/communities:
