Archive: What does video do to your online identity?

Published by at 11:17 am under identity,visual thinking

This is a repost from my old Blogger Blog from here.

It is weird to see video of myself online. Robin Good’s WeblogProject captures me in a way that is both familiar and strange to me. Is this part of my identity on the web? Yup, I guess so, squinting and all, with, as my pal Rosana says, duck-bill lips. Mamma mia.

Tonight I was dealing with an issue about privacy and identity in an online community I support. We happily “talk” away to each other in ways and places that we forget are open to the spiders of search engines, the traces we are increasingly leaving across cyberspace.

What advice would you give to people? How much should we show? Why? When?
