Sound of the Bazaar Emerging Mondays -
Live Internet radio27th October 2008'What is digital identity?'

So what does digital identity mean to you? Do you care? As more of our lives, from personal to professional activities, find their way online how do we cope with managing our fractured and distributed digital presence. Can we ever keep 'personal' separate from 'professional' when tools and services mash-up our online identities in ways that are beyond our control? What does this mean for the development of new literacies and new services that seek to put our identities back within our grasp.With live interviews, music, strong opinion, poetry, our very own edupunk granny Leila and more. We will be broadcasting *LIVE* from 1800 - 1900 UK time, (check your local time here: http://tinyurl.com/4jk76t ).
