Avis d’expert : L’identité des blogueurs, la pointe émergée du vrai débat sur l’identité digitale par Thierry Wellhoff – Tribune e-Business. 29 June 2010
A very interesting article which argues that the question of anonymity or identity of bloggers on the net is a question of digital identity and that the debate should be looked upon from this broad angle rather than for the ‘petty’ question of anonymity.

The article reacts to the proposal of a French senator to force bloggers to reveal their identity. People are in favour of revealing identities, but there is also the concern of freedom of expression and bloggers should not be equated with blackmailers or ‘corbeau’ (people hidding behind anonymity to denounce accurate or inaccurate events/persons).

Finally the writer suggests that the issue of digital identity is really about theft of identity rather than any other problems.
