I like Matt’s post about identity on Facebook. Matt’s blog is way up my must-read scale because he’s in touch with his own shadow. Key quote:

My take is that our identities are to some extent manufactured anyway. We have some influence over how we look and what we do (but not total control). But these identities are also co-created with those around us. We perform ourselves (to an extent). And others feedback to us whether they buy our performances or not through performances of their own…

Human beings have always indulged in hypocrisy and double-standards. They enable us to survive. New technologies mean that we must invent new forms of hypocrisy and innovative double-standards to continue surviving. Because let’s face it, we’re certainly not going to be honest with each other.
