Identity in a Digital World

‘Everything a teenager does, says or looks at, however transitory, contributes to an aggregated virtual self that might one day have consequences for its real–life counterpart. How many of us would keep all our relationships and reputations intact if every transgression, mistake or youthful folly was held in public view?’

-Beeban Kidron
