Online Identity Fabrication Clay Shirky, whom I have linked to many a time, writes here about how a Dennis Lee in Singapore gave himself false credentials through the Internet. Although quite how him doing this through the Internet is special I am not sure. Certainly, it was easier to find him out by checking his online sources, online. How much harder would it have been to expose this fraud if he had stolen from hard-to-find but prestigious sounding journals overseas.
