Repetitive recursion in defense of uniquenessTimothy Grayson comments on Phil Wndley's post talking about Jon Udall's observation about the importance of identity. Specifically, Timothy quibbles with Phil's idea about multiple identities:
Phil makes the following statement: "Our online and offline identities are, for the most part, separate." The implicit assumptions here are that (a) identity appears to be tied to unique credentials and (b) there are or can be several identities for any individual. I rail against such a definition of the word because is contrary to my belief about (core) identity.
Don't give up your believe, Timothy! AS long as there are a few of us left who firmly believe that "identity" is a unique quality there's hope for mankind. References are here, here, and especially here.
