Orange Identities

A small note to, well, note that I am appearing as a panelist in the "Identity Summit", presented by the Communications Company, Orange, this coming Friday the Sixteenth of November.

What does - or does not - an avatar reveal about its owner? How does virtual identity become a brand? Is the humanoid form the best way to express our true selves?

Come find out with us on Friday, November 16, as Orange Island will be hosting a series of discussions by Second Life residents and community leaders on the nature of identity and avatars. This Identity Summit will address such topics as non-human avatars, avatars as personas, and avatars as personal brands.

One may read many more details and the full programme on the afore-linked page (a "distinguished speaker"? moi?) but I personally will be addressing the topic of "Persona and Identity Transparency in Business", along with Mr Forseti Svarog, at 11am Second Life Time (or 7pm Greenwich Mean Time).

The whole business of identity and persona and where and when personae exist and are evident is something that I have always been keenly interested in, and I am most definitely looking forward to discussing the said matters with anyone who happens to be around at the time. I warn all readers that I am known for both going off on irrelevant tangents in such environments, and also for being rather difficult to shut up, but I am sure Mr Svarog will be talking far more sense than I. Other items on the agenda should also prove thought-provoking and entertaining, and for the show-offs amongst you there is a Contest for Unique and Interesting Avatars, though you should remember to register yourself the day before.

As an additional matter, it appears that Orange Island is not, thankfully, entirely orange, which would be rather hard on one's eyes. Though parts of it are.
