Online Identity - Science Festival Talks

Part of Who Do You Think You Are? a series of talks to accompany our production of A Number presented by Edinburgh International Science Festival.

In an increasingly wired world, how is technology influencing how we present ourselves online and how we craft and create our identities? What are the challenges and opportunities of being whoever you want to be online? Emmy and BAFTA Award-winning BBC presenter and social psychologist Aleks Krotoski will discuss Online Identity, including how technology is influencing how we present ourselves, authenticity versus artifice, and how sharing information online could hamper freedom, with author and musician Pat Kane (Hue and Cry), who was an activist for Scottish self-government in 1980s and 90s.
