Managing your online reputation

Nancy White links to an interesting comment about Managing your personal online reputation will be a core life skill

I'm going to circle back on this, but wanted to tag it/blog it as something to consider as part of my online competencies thinking... Open (finds, minds, conversations)...: Managing your personal online reputation will be a core life skill:

"...managing your personal reputation will become a basic life/career skill as the way the world communicates becomes increasing oriented to the web."

A friend asked me about this in regard to posting pictures of my child or other personal information.  Have I given any thought to "controlling his digital identity?"

Nancy's find goes a little further.  How will I teach my kids online rules?  Will there be online rules that are as easy as the rules in the real world? 

  • Look both ways before you cross the street.
  • Don't talk to strangers.
  • Cough into your elbow (not into your hand).

As I recall, this topic came up in last year's BlogWalk Chicago around the question of providing appropriate education, just like one might provide financial management and other kinds of life-skills education.
