But today, to a truly novel degree, we are all, always, performing; and we must be performing, for we are in fact on stage.

As social creatures, we interiorize this audience, model it as naturally and persistently as we model the physics involved in walking, and bring it into our most private and inner spaces. The voices of strangers online echo in your bathroom; the entire timeline is with you in your bed.
