What stays, and what disappears
In the digital age, what happens when you want to distance yourself from your past self? How can you create a space to change, when your identity online is fixed? Should news organizations take stories down when the subject of the story makes a request? "On the Media" this weekend was very good on these questions. While it seems that individuals do not have the freedom to change their online identities, what about corporations and television shows like Saturday Night Live? I've noted the educational significance of this issue before, and I think it will continue to be an area of debate and discussion long into the future.
