    Comment from Adam Procter on the blog post:

    “The alt account thing sounds useful but as the system knows the accounts are connected. Why wouldn’t you just set up another account as it’s likely I don’t want anyone even the system to know El Pingo has anything to do with Jeremy”

    Feedback from Gayatri Venugopal on Twitter:

    “Unable to relate to it personally. Beneficial if u want to create a separate identity for a set of communities. Another option would b to have separate privacy settings for each community under the user but that would increase the load on the user. So I think it might be useful.”

    Comment from Dirk Meyer on the blog post:

    “Thanks for the nice short screen casts! I am on the fence with respect to multiple personalities capabilities. How is trust affected? On the other hand, this could be a handy feature for people to adjust their persona. I might want to have a persona that is entirely focused on my hobbies an then another that is focused on my present teaching assignments.”
