has anybody been working on the difference between feeling anonymous
and technical understandings of anonymity and re-identification, and
how to relate these two things? i know sherry turkle wrote about
anonymity on the internet long time ago and inspired much (critical)
work, but i do not know of any recent works outside of the security/
privacy studies which often pose users as being naive/uncaring and
identity as something fixed.
i had to come back to the question today after colleagues posted
information about a site which automatically maps ip addresses of the
chatrouletters to approximate locations on a google map together with
a screenshot of the chatterer.
more information can be found here:
a more general article on ubiquitous video streaming is here:
any tips or thoughts on this matter are much appreciated.
