Thoughts on Google+

Thoughts on Google+ | Digital Footprint | Scoop.it
I fucked up. So has Google.
Peter Vander Auwera's insight:

Fantastic post by Chris Messina, with lots of great reflections on Identity, Privacy and Empowerment

 

"I’ll be the first (well, maybe the second) to admit that we’re no longer living in the golden era of social networking. "


"So why does the competition for control of digital identity matter anymore? Frankly, because as I’ve long held, identity is the platform — the killer app of networked personal computing devices (even more so as we increasingly depend on more than one authenticated device at a time!)."


"....changes the nature of the conversation by making it less about “privacy” and more about empowerment. While some people will freak out (as they always do), this would be a bold, productive, future-forward direction to take. Hell, we’re living in this reality already—but few give straight talk about what’s going on, and how their data is, or be could, be used for their benefit"
