I will remember the day of July 7 (7-7-2017!) for a long time – the day that I successfully defended my doctoral dissertation in Digital Media. My deep appreciation goes to my advisor at the University of Porto, Professor José Azevedo, and my co-advisor at the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum, Robert Costello. I am also grateful for the insightful comments and discussion promoted by the jury at the defense: Professor Pedro Casaleiro, Professor Ana Delicado, Professor Nuno Correia and Professor António Coelho.
