Patchwerk
Patchwerk is a social tool that analyses popularity and status in the digital world. It was developed by Didier Hilhorst as his graduation project at Interaction Design Institute Ivrea.

“A suite of web-based tools allows people to manage and track their digital identity and compare their status with others, individually or in groups.”

“The Patchwerk web application gathers what you publish and what is published about you. It lets you manage your publications in a centralised and easy-to-use environment. You can join groups, add friends and compare yourself to others”

You can access Patchwerk through a widget or directly through its website.

The project was co-supervised by Experientia partner Jan-Christoph Zoels in his capacity as senior associate professor at Interaction-Ivrea.
