I think I'll be awesome today...

When you post a comment on a Blogger post, you receive the following prompt: "Choose an identity."

Like it's that easy. If you consider the number of struggles, campaigns, wars, arguments, martyrdoms, and institutionalizations that have occured in the search for even a margin of that autonomy and flexibility as regards identity, it seems either cruel and flippant or a dream come true that, as far as Blogger is concerned, you can just pick.

There's obviously a lot more to write about Internet avatars, but I'll stop for now.
