Get a life?

February 20, 2003

I happened to drop by Metafilter before going to sleep and came across this thread, which touches on 4 interesting issues:
1. The World Economic Forum (at Davos)
2. Authenticating information and sources in the internet age
3. Whether electronic discussion forums are inherently invalid wastes of time
4. Whether we can expect any right to privacy with personal email

I wrote some thoughts about point #3, which touch on some of my initial thinking on the subject. My moot court brief will keep me from developing those thoughts for a while, but I would like to also discuss the problem of anonymity and ID. How much does it affect one's credibility and reputation to write anonymously on the internet?
