YEs! Totally. I think when you're talking to people who program, however, they're like, what? People hide stuff? Why? BUt yes, yes, particularly women, because women exist in different worlds. Sometimes you read some blog started by a journalist or "serious" writer who will soon say "why write anything if I'm not going to sell it?" and sure enough, it disappears soon after, because they don't see the point. And they're usually men. But not always.

Keith's site he made for me allows me to post on two different sites in two different identities. It's cool. Perhaps you could talk to him about it, too.

Jane

I very much agree! Right now I have two blogs under different pseudonyms (one in Typepad and the other in Blogger) and it would be great to be able to manage them more smoothly. Heck, sometimes I'd even like to be my "real" self online.

Eugene Eric Kim

Yes! You also should be able to move your identities fluidly from one community to another. I suggested something similar -- "Free Identity!" -- as a proposal for Jimmy Wales's "Things That Should Be Free":

Wow, yes - and I think it sounds funny to people who are thinking about identity as truth and authentication, which we do need. But we also need the ability to lie! If the lies rest on top of truth, that would perhaps be beneficial... you only have to be true to the person who has your credit card number.

Excellent points. I have a personal blog, which is semi-anonymous, and a political blog. For me, the issue hasn't been as much trying to hide something as it has been trying to provide relevant information. if I'm commenting on a friend's blog that's hosted on Blogger, I want my identity to link back to my personal site. When I'm commenting on someone's political blog that also happens to be hosted on Blogger, they could care less about my personal blog but I'd like to point them to my political blog. But that means having two sets of login/password as far as I know, and then I lose the benefit of having my browser memorize it and fill it in for me. Feh.

Just dropping by to say Hello, and that I enjoyed meeting you at BarCamp.

You should do that survey. The results would be fascinating, especially for women.
