I want to share some of the content of my future presentation at the Israeli "Blog Day". The title of the presentation will be "The New People".
I believe that blogs redefine the way people can connect and know each other: It allows people to "get inside" other people minds and experiences and it enable us, the bloggers, define our personal and professional identities.
In the drawing I made I tried to illustrate the 3 dimensions of how the "New People" manage their Identities in the various layers of communication the engage almost every day.
Life 01: Personal relationships in the Real world. Face to face meetings. Fully exposed identity. Behave in the way the society expect. Family, Friends, Co workers etc
Life 02: Virtual identity in Web forums and Chat rooms. My identity is measured by my opinion in the conversations that I respond to, My language and syntax. Behave in the way the community expect.
Life 03: Me in my blog. Direct connection to my mind. it is a personal letter I write to the world. Behave in the way I feel right.
