This Flickr photo is proof that Apple seems to think that Canada is US territory. This is a fatal business flaw. Some of you may be wondering about the Canadian ‘identity’ I am about to post this great article by Bruce Mau that I hope will explain it to you.
On Identity and privacy and self moderation. How digital identity and what persistence means over time.
Kids don’t expect privacy these days, they put everything up there. We are all aware that the computer doesn’t’ have the same kind of memory as humans have, it archives things whereas people forget. So what’s going to happen in 20 years when they are going on job interviews?
Lili: Self-moderation evolves over time. And it’s cultural, so different countries evolve differently.
Mena: There’s going to be a point where there are going to be more complex permissions, so you can control who sees what.
Amy Jo: When people get a phone for the first time, they get very excited about it, and they go through an arc. Start off over enthusiastic and then they moderate themselves. Same with social networks. So often opening everything up is often a phase, not somewhere people stay. And it’s a function on where you are in your life and what you are doing.
