Digital freedom: Virtual reality, avatars, and multiple identities: Jim Blascovich at TEDxWinnipeg - YouTube

Josie Eldred's curator insight, September 9, 2014 1:27 AM

13. This video is long and covers the topic of multiple identities quite broadly, but there are a few quotes in it that I think are very relevant to my presentation. This one in particular stood out to me: "Digital worlds, including chat rooms, massive multiplayer online games, unstructured social platforms such as Second Life and 3D immersive virtual reality - think Kinect but on steroids - have opened doors to perceptions and self presentations that have never been opened before." (Blascovich, J., 2011) I think the points that Jim Blascovich puts forward about the ability to be able to experiment with self presentation and exploration through online technologies are worth noting. Given that Mr Blascovich is a psychologist specialising in social influence within technologically mediated environment (amongst other things) and that he's done extensive research on the topic of online identity, I trust his authority.
