Liz Henry of BlogHer, Andy Carvin of NPR, and Daniel Sinker (Knight-Mozilla News Technology Partnership) discuss when and under what conditions it is OK for people to hide their true identities online. The context of this discussion was the conflicting narratives of Sinker's @mayoremanuel Twitter feed - where he brilliantly channeled the raging id of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel - and the "Gay Girl in Damascus" blogger who inspired an international panic before being outed as a straight man in Edinburgh, Scotland.

This panel discussion took place at MIT, as part of the Knight Foundation's News Challenge.
