ABSTRACT
Digital media researchers celebrate the Internet as a promise of democratic renewal arranged by collective intelligences within an arena of mutual and multicultural collaboration. Nonetheless, the digital self also delivers a set of features not nearly as attractive. Focusing on the analysis of the individual, rather than the collective, this paper aims to discuss the fundamentals of the digital self. As a guide for this not quite so appealing side of cyberspace, we present a character referred to here as digital delinquent. Being around everywhere in cyberspace, the delinquent processes information (s)he cannot understand and gives life to a particular type of Internet user. As a byproduct of information overload, there is in every one of us a little bit of a digital madman.
