LinkedIn Founder Reid Hoffman on Networks As Identities

Over at The Wall Street Journal (porous paywall):

“Your identity is now constituted by the network,” he says. “You are your friends, you are your tribe, you are your interactions with your colleagues, your customers, even your competitors. All those things come to form what your reputation is.” In short, you are no longer the only one in control of your résumé.

Certainly an interesting perspective.
