30 Days, 30 Questions

Check the "30 Days, 30 Questions" Buzz blog every day to find a different identity-related question. Ask the daily question to your friends, family, and/or strangers in whatever way feels comfortable (e.g. face-to-face, social networks, etc.) Record their answers and any anecdotes you want to share. Finally, return to the "30 Days, 30 Questions," find the link for the questions on the right sidebar, restate the question, and post your responses on the blog page that corresponds to the question you are answering.
