'While self-representations continue to offer the promise of finding a meaning and order in the haphazard flow of human experience, thus granting unity to the self, the technologies that now shape them seem to deny that unity, for they tend towards fragmentation, recuperation, reiteration, accumulation, alteration, stacking, updating, morphing, airbrushing, photoshopping. It is thus possible to begin to isolate some tendencies of self-inscription that are shaped by digital tecnologies of the self: narcissism (the omnipresence of the “I”, the confessional mode, the customization of genres and languages); fragmentation (the aesthetic of the fragment, the clip, the conciseness of online textuality); instability (the mutability, updatability, manipulability of digital products).'
