Extensions on relational identity

See also: digital identity

Identity constantly shifts in real life depending on who you are around. We try to approximate this using multiple accounts online to try to prevent context collapse

But identity shouldn’t feel like different accounts you hop between different digital platforms. Identity should be the principles of your experience, it should be applicable across contexts

Digital identity should enable novel interactions, not try to simplify existing ones. Identity systems rely on the concentration of power in the hands of operators who cannot possibly be fully aligned (financially, socially, or morally) with all of their users—for example, private social media companies with diverse global audiences must often make decisions about what constitutes an act of unjustified censorship versus an act in the interest of public safety, though they are often ill-equipped to do so
