Slide Presentation: Managing Our Online “Profersonal” Lives (Lorcan Dempsey Speaks in Pittsburgh)

Lorcan Dempsey, the leader of the OCLC Research team, gave a presentation last week at the University of Pittsburgh Library System about social networking and personal identity.

His “random notes” slides are embedded below. Interesting and useful. Many slides include some great quotes/passages (with citations, of course). Thanks Lorcan!
