RSA conference

Thanks to David for pointing out this free conference that looks quite interesting.  The blurb says it will focus on:

the political culture and norms that the internet has been instrumental in fostering, both in relation to centralised politics and more diffuse social and civic networks…

Virtual environments let people create their own digital identity with their own unique psychology. When online do we treat people differently, does the technology that we are using change how we would behave in the real world? If people create their own representation what does it say about them and what are the wider implications, social and political.

Sounds up my street so I’ll try to get along to see what I can learn and contribute.  I post it here because I think it might be of interest to a number of my readers, who are walking that walk.
