Gallery at the Event Intro Wall at the Event: It includes general and introductory information. It talks
about our redefinition of a conversation, the paradox of online interaction as a disconnecting form of
contact, as well as some thought provoking questions on etiquette and social technology. Example 'Profile' at the Event Full Timeline, actual size is 6 feet tall and nearly 19 feet wide. It contains the history of manners, courtesy, and etiquette as it applies to social interaction, specifically relationships, conversation, and correspondence. The timeline is broken up by time period. Color Coding on the Timeline for different aspects of courtesy The top half graphs the importance of different aspects of courtesy. The bottom half of the timeline contains boxes of information. This is where you find the actual history and attitudes toward behavior. The boxes include: key experts, key books, and what they have to say, as well as other overall behaviors of the times.The lines connecting the boxes represent influences. The timeline also includes key events, inventions, and eras. Detail, The information in the timeline is authentic and results of my research into the history of our behavior. None of the content is placeholder. Detail A key thing to notice when viewing this timeline, is how much advice on social behavior completely drops off in the post modern era. Program Cover Program Spread The program contains appropriate
modes of conversation throughout history. The advice comes from the experts themselves in courtesy and
etiquette books as far back as 2560 BC. Program Spread: Advice from the Ancient period In the Post Modern period, the present, the program contains a schedule. These are
the times when the people at the event will read their online conversations aloud. The last section of the program contains trivia. Can you name all of your online friends? Here are Kristina Kelley’s MySpace Friends. Find her and see if she can name them all. If they really are her friends, she should be able to name them all.

These was my Senior Thesis project, a culmination of a semester's worth of research, study and design. This project explores the history of appropriate social behavior in contrast to today's social interactions. The world's captivation by the electronic age and decline of etiquette, customs, and tradition provoked this exploration. The project aims to use history as information, entertainment, and thought provoking material, contrast the past with the present and future, and stimulate thought on the implications of social technologies on our relationships. Social technologies refer to electronic means of interaction: texting, tweeting, instant messaging, emailing, blogging, forum posting, and social networking.

The final form of the project is the design of and materials for a hypothetical event as well as a style guide and manual for hosting and putting the event together.

Patterns of Behavior is an event that challenges today's modes of social interaction. People behave differently online than they do in real life situations, by taking the event participant's online information and putting it in a physical space, issues of privacy, information disclosure, and superficial relationships are brought forth. The online information is juxtaposed with the evolutionary history of appropriate behavior through etiquette and courtesy books. The purpose of etiquette is to help people avoid embarrassment, by teaching people how to behave, they can be at ease in all situations. The event questions whether the participants really are at ease with these current modes of behavior and whether these electronic interactions are really beneficial to relationships.
