CHUCK ON MPR

I just did an interview about Jeff Weise's online postings with Minnesota Public Radio reporter Lorna Benson. Here's her article from yesterday. I'll post audio here if I can catch the piece. (Thanks, Mike!)

UPDATE
MPR.ORG: Jeff Weise's enigmatic Internet persona article and RealAudio.

The piece quotes me as saying "Weise seemed to have a lot of different online identities, and he seemed to reveal different parts of himself to different communities online." I will now summon my blog power to expand on that. BLOG POWER ACTIVATE!

In essense, I said it's natural to reveal different parts of yourself in different online forums. In person you probably don't reveal all of yourself to someone, not knowing how they might react to some of your interests. But online, you can find a community of people who share that interest (say, creepy dolls or umm... Nazis) and you know it's a safe place to talk. We all have multifaceted identities, perhaps more than any one person ever knows.
