“Facebook and Google are doing it wrong”

Christopher ‘Moot’ Poole (Founder of 4chan and Canvas) gave a very interesting talk about online identity at the Web 2.0 summit in San Fransisco yesterday.

I definitely agree that people are multi-faceted and as Poole says, not one dimensional mirrors as Facebook would have you believe. I also agree that Google+ missed opportunities to innovate by being restrictive with user names.
