Here are few interesting points for further discussion:
- •Kaliya Hamlin spoke about OpenID and other identity management applications that allow users to maintain one identity across many sites.
- Mary Hodder made the suggestion that we all be transparent about what we do online so that the government can’t stigmatize certain people or certain behaviors
- Ted Nadeau made the point that while you are connected to your identity you are not in control of it
- George Kelly showed us the interactive Johari window as an example of how our reputations so not belong to us, but rather to the people who interact with us
Another interesting point raised was how we manage the public versus private space. Again, as a young industry, I think there is a lot to be learned from others in similar, older industries, such as media. As a trained and practicing journalist, I was required to take a media law class as part of my undergrad degree. Point being, there are existing parameters for deciphering what’s “fair” to post publicly, that we (and by “we” I mean every person on the planet who is now in a place of being a de facto reporter) can and should learn from.
