Pamala Clift- Researcher, Educator, Author,
Business Consultant & Public Speaker
(an autodidactic observer of psychology and anthropological interactions)
With over five years of relationship consulting and research on virtual relationships & avatar perceptions Pam works consulting, lecturing and teaching about how computer mediated communication evokes trustworthiness or lack thereof. She understands the complexities added to real life perceptions with these additional filters.
A BS degree in Business Mgt, a Certified Scrum Product Owner and a former professional clown, she brings with her a lifetime of eclectic experiences from which she draws her favorite title.. "Philosopher".
Pam's lectures have been peer reviewed by hundreds of educators, psychologists, business professionals and social media experts with great input and acknowledgements.
She did not learn all of her insights from just her own experiences but with the influx and open sharing of thoughts and perceptions from her group The Roadside Philosophers
. A wonderful international group of several hundred thinkers that examine perceptions virtually.
In all of philosophical history this is the first time that we have had virtual worlds to use as a metaphor in our search for truth.
I am often asked why I go by Pamala Clift online, pen name, & for my research and there are several reasons.
1. No one would be able to find me if I went under Pat Murphy in a search. Almost all the top search results will find me as Pamala Clift. (with all A's)
2. It is a good idea for everyone to have an alias online, one that you can tell your friends and keep as much as possible off the web.
3. While growing up a lot of people would mistakenly call me Pam.
4. Since I have written about, and assist with topics that are sexual in nature, for many in my little town, or ethically believe sex should never be discussed: I would rather not put my real life name out there to make them uncomfortable.
