Like I said before I am going through the backlog of snipits in my blog posting tool and finding some cool stuff. Here are two great posts on the Future Salon site that are worth thinking about in terms of identity.
They point to an issue in business week, a book by a nobel prize winner and article series highlighting the fact that information is power particularly when shared amongst people and in community. This power that people have to share their own data/inforamtion to trusted parties has the power to radically shift the economic landscape and one reason I am so excited about projects like Interra (BTW they will be using i-names).
Ethics and discernment will be a key job qualification in the coming era.
…as automation replaces our more rote cognitive and behavioral tasks, workers will transition into an increasingly transparent, highly connected society. In that environment our ability to be fair, responsible, dependable, trustable, and credible (doing what we promise), as well as our ability to empower and help others, as determined by their public feedback, will become the primary propositions differentiating our value to the system.
