Content-type: text/html ~ Stephen's Web ~ The Many Facets of “Identity”

Stephen Downes

Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a transcript of a talk at QCom and it reads like that, but it also reads like a rant of one of the best kinds. Radia Perlman (who assures us she's the only person in the world with that name) discusses the many facets of identity and the frustrations internet users experience with each of them. How do we describe who we are, who do we prove it (assuming we should) to others, and mostly, how do we avoid drowning in confusion over the whole topic. Great talk, and you should read to the very hand-licking end.
