Why the Online Identity & Data Ownership Debate Matters

3 May

excerpt from emergent by design
The Future We Deserve

At the moment, commercial entities know more about our preferences and behaviors online than we do. With all the services out there that facilitate social interaction, there is still no easy way to connect with people with whom we share affinities, and then to effectively exchange information with them or collaborate in a meaningful way.

Our online identity and data *should* be our right to control, so that we are empowered to make better decisions about our lives and well-being, find potential collaborators or kindred spirits, or generally create more meaningful and valuable relationships. It’s worth asking:
What would a people-centric web look like?
What if it felt more like walking through a town commons and less like walking through a shopping mall?
How could identity and trust be built into the architecture of the internet?”

House – Private Lives

29 Nov

Thanks for the recommendation Jason! This episode of House looks at a woman who has an obsession with blogging about every little detail about her life. While hospitalized, she even asks her readers to help her decide on what kind of heart valve transplant she should receive. There are some great quotes about truth and the internet and whether we can know each other better in person or through the web.
