We have to build the community (that once was a geographical given) as an online audience and hold it together by performing for it perpetually. The truth test becomes a way to ascertain one’s own reality, to register a “true” or “real” self that exists apart from the flux of contingencies that seem to shape us in real time. A self is not a sum of content; a self is a practice.
Talking is not enough; it must be elevated to a display of a way of life. You know you are living the truth if others regard you as a scandal. The analogy to social media seems almost self-evident. They permit us to make self-documentation a form of confrontation, not idle self-centered chatter.
Foucault explains how cynical practice pushes honor and truth-telling to an extreme at which its radical honesty becomes indistinguishable from a “shameless life”:
Most of online communication is conventionally performative (reiterating pre-existing status and stable emotional bonds—routinely liking the status updates of friends and “keeping in touch”) if not phatic (simply announcing one’s existence, in a kind of mic check). People using Facebook are not risking very much—not enough to keep them from using the site to try to help manage their general anxiety about social inclusion.

Chris Dancy has been engaging information systems for over 20 years, wearing as many hats as there are heads in the IT industry. Currently he is a Director in the CTO’s office at BMC, but more importantly he serves the role of Data Exhaust Cartographer--he utilizes over 300 sensors and systems to track, analyze, and optimize as many areas of his existence as he can think of. This quantification enables him to see the connections of otherwise invisible data, resulting in dramatic upgrades to his health, productivity, and quality of life.
Most people know Chris as @servicesphere on twitter; as the creator of the largest global podcast for IT support professionals,ITSM Weekly; as the founder of the world’s first global, follow-the-sun, 24-hour virtual conference, Tomorrow’s Future Today; and as the creator and co-host of the newly minted present-shock audio cast Mindful Cyborgs.
