id not ID. Has it ever occurred to you that in a Freudian way the Internet is where you can give free rein to your id? Id: that’s the one whose best friends are the ego (the unconscious mind’s ‘referee’) and superego (home to morals & values). Why? Cyberspace is a place where you can behave as you like without identifying yourself or being controlled. Great for the id which is concerned with all things impulsive and uninhibited. Not sure what this means for people who write Blogs (!) but it might help to explain other online activity.
