lain.and.blogs >> Creating Your Own Persona >> 1-2-3-4

The blog in Lain can be thought of as a "sensorial interface" blog. More than just writing, the online version of the self becomes what the user desires. People see and hear her as an actual person. Whoever is at the receiving end of the information need not know if that person is that way in the "real world" or not. The power of anonymity in the Wired and in the Internet brings about this fact. In Lain’s case, however, the effects of her online persona bring about monstrous effects, as friends and strangers alike are impacted by "Lain of the Wired," Lain’s online representation of herself.
