One Vince Miller
Enjoyed a wonderful Radio 3 Nightwaves Podcast this morning. It was a debate on identity on the internet, how people adopt different names and personalities to blog and tweet etc (perish the very thought!). To add to the confusion one of the participants was introduced as "the sociologist Vince Power", which got me pondering about how he promotes Irish music festivals in his spare time and probably has other exotic identities. It turned out he was in fact the sociologist Vince Miller. For me though, there's only one Vince Miller, a fine man of this parish and much as I enjoyed Dr Miller's observations on authenticity, our Vince would have kept it very real indeed.
