Kevin: Paul Bradshaw takes a look at the differences in journalism and blogging culture. Looking at this, I wonder if some of these aren't slightly anachronistic.

Kevin: One of the issues that comes up time and again in discussions about online community is the issue of anonymity. Some believe that verified identity would automatically improve behaviour. I personally think that anonymity is only part of the problem and often used as a scapegoat for other problems including a lack of editorial vision for social media and editorial content that has little reason to be beyond 'let's start a fight'. However, there is another way beyond verified, real identity. Anonymous identity. This post looks at how such a system could work.

Kevin: 37signals looks at how conversation has changed on the site since they made changes to their sign up procedure to curb anonymity. Things have improved. Looking at what they have done, it doesn't seem that they have verified identity as much as trying to get people to provide a name. Maybe the speedbump was enough to increase the quality of conversation on the site.

Kevin: A good write up on identity, privacy and Dopplr, a social network based on travel built by friends of ours. Dopplr treats your data as your data, not just theirs.

Suw: Are URLs better than email addresses for identifying people? I can see why developers focus on email addresses - they want to both be able to hassle you and make sure your address works. But maybe URLs would also work?

Kevin: Steve at the Bivings Report notes how the Sacramento Bee is requiring commenters to use their real names. I think that allowing people to develop an identity and a sense of ownership in that identity might be as effective.
