good conversation really quick with David Swedlow who was on the folksonomy panel. he said something so great about different identities, authentication.
Swedlow: you go to the beach and you go to the bank, and you know not to wear your bikini at the bank.
Me: yes!!! and the thing is, no one thinks it’s weird that you own a bikini. you don’t get fired because you go to the beach wearing a bikini… everyone has multiple identities and depth to their personality… this is part of what was radical about the evolution of the novel… now, blogging reveals more of that. we MUST expect other people to have those depths & express them…
er. blah blah but you get the idea. note to self, look at what he meant by implicit tagging, i didn’t quite get it.
