A Domain of One’s Own provides domain names and Web space to members of the UMW community, encouraging individuals to explore the creation and development of their digital identities.


A Domain of One’s Own is a project at the University of Mary Washington managed by the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies.

Starting in fall 2013, the project allows UMW students, faculty, and staff to register their own domain name and associate it with a space on a UMW-managed Web server. In that Web space, users will have the opportunity and flexibility to design and create spaces of almost unlimited possibilities. Within the system, they may install LAMP-compatible Web applications, set up subdomains and email addresses, and install databases. In addition, users may choose to “map” their domain (or a subdomain) to other services, such as a UMW Blogs, Google Sites, or Tumblr…….

presentation by Audrey – april 2014:

15 min – domain of one’s own flies in the face of the concept of scale. this is about people.

30 min – what’s magic is that we can deeply connect

@Bali_Maha @allistelling @jimgroom @mburtis @timmmmyboy I wrote this hackeducation.com/2016/08/23/dom…

Virginia Woolf’s essay “A Room of One’s Own,”

It’s about having the financial freedom and a personal space to write.

Debra Schleef: a domain is more than a delimited internet space with your name on it – it is a figurative room that provides time, creative license, and a space to express oneself freely.

I think we know such a thing as an “ownership society” has *never existed for all of us. Nor has, to be fair,

**the ability to have “a room of one’s own.”

and it *has to be all of us.. or it won’t work.. www ness via hosting-life-bits

**this is what rp ness models..

When I call for each of us to have a domain of our own, I’m not really invoking “ownership” in the way in which Maha suggests the “Domain of One’s Own” initiative implies; but I am, I do confess, invoking Virginia Woolf and the importance having the space and safety and security (financially well before technologically) to think and write and be.

time and space.. luxury/chamber/room ness to be hide and still be out there..
