Identity and the Language Poets

Jenny Connected

The idea that language is central to the construction of the self and identity resonates with me. This would fit with Bonnie Stewart’s work on Digital Identities. But I’m not sure that this means that we have multiple identities. ModPo has been moving too fast for me again.

The influence of technology on professional identity

Venkatesh Rao over at Forbes has a perceptive article on the recent trend of the enthusiasm for “big data” resulting in everybody laying claim to the title “Data Scientist” But his comments have strong resonances with all sorts of hype-responses – KM suffered from this in the early years and every claim for a replacement therapy/technology for KM ever since has done so too. Here’s the relevant section of Venkatesh’s post – sound familiar?

Does Online Identity Matter In Virtual Teams?

Leading Virtually

This paper focused on how one’s online identity may affect virtual team member perceptions and how virtual teams work together. Specifically, we looked at how one’s online identity affects perceptions of anonymity within the team and how that sense of anonymity affects group cohesion and satisfaction. I just returned from the Academy of Management conference in Chicago where I presented a paper that Surinder and I wrote with Professor Rui Huang.

Governance in a Networked World

I've recently returned from a trip to Europe as well as my very first trip to Shanghai and the world Expo there (along with a few business meetings). In a workshop I was leading in Milan I mentioned that I could legitimately hand out up to 5 business cards of entities that I represent. Now I don't have 5 different business cards but through my prime company (Optimice) we have partners in Europe that would know us through our partners there.

Recording of Etienne Wenger’s talk

Etienne talks about social learning theory, identity, communities of practice, power, knowledge and learning in the 21st century – too much to comment on here – but these are some of the notes I jotted down (for my own purposes – not intended as a report) at the time.

Academic Betreat – The Work of Identity

Jenny Connected

I had hoped that we would discuss identity at the Academic BEtreat and I wasn’t disappointed. What I hadn’t expected that my own identity would become such a focus of my learning on the BEtreat. In the 21 st century the work of building an identity is greater than ever before. Identity is a negotiated expression of the self and these days there are so many landscapes and communities in which to do this, particularly for the young.

Not bloging, identities and Happy New Year :)


What I didn’t realise is that identities change or, to be more specific, some of those many identities in each of us take leading role for a while. Or, to be even more specific, I didn’t realise how much my professional identity was leading in my life.

Let me state up front that these distinctions are purposely blunt, but do act as effective and critical distinctions, especially when talking to people about how and why they can manage their online identities. They're also very indiscreet, leaky categories, although it is of course possible to find examples of people who's online identity is confined to or dominated by a single category.
