I think you don't own a lot of your identity as the world projects identities back onto us that in turn influence how we see and shape ourselves which influences how the world projects on to us.

@bali_maha gives an excellent example how Google data could never be neutral: A it isn't everyone, B it is banned. C I would suggest Google has a fiduciary responsibility to shareholders to maximize profit of data....That is not neutral.

Greg McVerry

There is no neutral data. They are all bias. You can't even think about the hypothetical. Deterministic algorithims always lose a bit and reinforce others .

@vahidm They are proprietary. They are not shared, just google identity graph examples..it is all marketing blogs.

Yes, the head to head count is in the US Constitution. I think what @downes meant when "counting isn't important" it meant more "it isn't as good as scientific modeling that did not exist in 1782" but US courts use strict textual interpretation.

@xolotl Privilege for you and I in terms of the skills needed, survival for others. Transfolk, for example bifurcate identities to stay alive.

Greg McVerry

And it all comes full circle @vconnecting pops out of which traces it's roots back to @downes

@downes broke his bicycle identity away from his scholarship identity but his joke about other bikers not seeing him as a bicycler also brings up expertise as contextual and how identity can shift.

That is why infographics aren't great for the web....trying to make one that uses just HTML and CSS Grid...but I am not a developer so engineer so it's so going.
