The Power of Names: How We Define Technology, and How Technology Defines Us - Aestetix PhreakNIC 16 (2012) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

The Power of Names: How We Define Technology, and How Technology Defines Us - Aestetix
PhreakNIC 16 (2012)

After getting suspended twice from Google Plus over what became #nymwars, aestetix began to explore what identity is really all about and the different ways we represent ourselves both online and offline. Picking up from his PhreakNIC talk last year, aestetix is back from the Gulch to present some of his new findings. This talk will explore the nature of identity, gleaning wisdom from masters like Carl Jung, and will try to answer a number of important questions, such as "Why do hacker handles matter?" and "Is there such a thing as a real name?" We'll also take a look at existing technical implementations of online identity, how well they incorporate fundamental principles, and make some suggestions for future online identity systems.
