From to : Nicknames, Play and Identity on Internet Relay Chat.
Bechar-Israeli, Haya
Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, v1 n2 Nov 1995
Examines nicknames of Internet Relay Chat (IRC) users, whose identities are condensed into a single line which states their nicknames, the electronic address, and a slogan or the users' real names. Demonstrates that although people play games with their nicknames, the nicknames they choose are an inherent part of their Net identity and their "real-life" identity. (RS)
