Steve, a successful 29 year old personal trainer, has been challenged to live his life completely online for one week. He will be living in a glass-fronted ‘box’ in a retail unit in central London between 7am and 7pm, and sourcing all the things he needs to make his life comfortable via the Internet.
He’ll have to conquer challenges daily from today – starting with a task to buy his furniture online. You can help Steve with suggestions and advice, as well as chat with him online so he doesn’t get lonely.
Steve will be tweeting from a special account @Lifeinabox2012 and making a video diary asking for help with his challenges so follow him on Twitter and like the Facebook page now to track his progress.
The results of the experiment will be revealed in national press, TV and radio on Monday 1 October on to mark the start of National Identity Fraud Week.
Life in a Box is an experiment in keeping safe online from Experian CreditExpert. The project aims to help us all develop a greater understanding about our online life and the day-to-day activity that makes up our digital DNA. A third party online security consultant is looking at how far information can spread during the week, should it get into the wrong hands.
