Being at the US Social Forum has been giving me lots of food for thought. It's not as much because of the content of the workshops, but because of what identities I have brought with me to the different sessions. In the one I gave, my identity was as an free and open source software advocate. In the panel I was on, I was a progressive faith blogger (and secondarily, a techie with blogging technology expertise.) At another workshop I attended I was mostly just myself, with a little bit of the faith blogger.
