    Very interested to read your blog. I’m researching identity partially prompted by someone purloining my name for use on a web site. This incident has made me question how identity was established in a broader philosophical way.

    With regard to your post on RFID chips in US passports it made me think of this article I had just read on the very entertaining and well researched Australian web site;

    Forgery and Fraud: Identity Documents

    I am new to the area and this a an interest and not a living for me but it seems that a great deal of identity hangs on ‘accepted usage’. What I mean is that for example, if I write a blog over a number of years and it is linked to an email address and maybe a couple of other websites (a la openID) that I control the content of, then if this is not challenged (and I’m not sure here how it could be?) then this ‘becomes’ my on-line identity. It is a ‘body of work’ spread over time that leaves a kind of fingerprint of who I am.

    The colorary of this is I suppose to imagine how hard it would be to forge all this this when every piece of information is open to cross referencing and checking and of course we know that copies of web pages are keep on-line and are there, like our conscience whispering to us if we tell little lies.

    I see my blog and other work as a kind of memory cloud and in future times I’m sure some government or corporation will just be able to match our memory and biometrics with what we have put ‘out there’ and see if they match – like finger prints.

    Just some radom thoughts…

    Thanks for stopping by and adding your comments. And thanks for the link to the article on forgery and fraud.

    I like your idea of a blog being a memory cloud that progressively establishes a virtual "fingerprint" of your identity.

    Best regards,
