More often identifications questions are subjected to topographicals
perceptions : Persons are divided through sexuals "topoï"; and
in collective conscioussness it isn't a matter of behavourial, mental
and social identity.
Otherwise through the new media networks, a very subtil game is
starting through various transferences and identifications phenomenon.
On forums we can't know who are our partners : men, women, transexuals,
In this context we can't talk about collective identities, but severals

who doesn't want to be known . Identity is appearing through flux,
exchanges, disappearances and various games. Identity in this space
built on real time is now a fluctuative fractality. The pesrpective
point can't be identified as the identity point, they are pulsating. I

Behind this ironic word, there is a new way to use the search engine
tools specially from the most famous one: Google.
Google is bringing a new kind of capitalism inspired by Riffkin based
on flux and access to information. We can perceive that the search
engines are not dealing with industry value or financial value but with
