David Birch: Identity without a name | Video on TED.com | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

TED Talks Bartenders needs to know your age, retailers need your PIN, but almost no-one needs your name -- except for identity thieves.

Four Problems

1. Chip and Pin ( there's no reason your name is on the card. The only person who benefits is criminal)

2. Chatrooms and Children (odd paradox if you know who everyone else is but not your real name or you child's real name)

3, Cheerleaders and Clubs ( To kids identities are fluent)

4. What, who  and whistle blowers (If you have to prove who you are you won't tell info)


The Old Paradigm -Identity Card

-he turns to Dr Who's pyschic paper..you see what you want to see but it only shows if it proves what you want..for example psychic paper shows club owner you are proper age..


worth watching!
