who we are

At the Blanchon book event last night (see previous post), there was some discussion of truth or creative storybuilding in some of Blanchon's works. If he creates an event, or tells a story, how much of it is true? Does it matter?

Now, there's a notice for:
Identity and Identification in a Networked World
A Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Symposium
September 29-30, 2006
Furman Hall 210
245 Sullivan Street
New York University School of Law

The first sentence of the description is:
Increasingly, who we are is represented by key bits of information scattered throughout the data-intensive, networked world.

But what if it's not true??
