Second Life and Online Communites

Destabilized identity is mentioned in the chapter. As globalization destabilizes a sense of collective identity, it may also paradoxically enable people to create their own identities. Do you agree with Kimmelman's assertion that we now live in an age where we can create our own unique culture?

Is there a difference between culture and identity?

Is it a good idea to further internet access to countries that have limited access? Given all we know about the perils of increased globalization, should we prompt others to engage the world in a similar way?
