Abstract : In the current trend of trying to understand the concept of digital identity (identity to be understood as resulting from the interaction of a user and an environment or digital medium), a commonly explored ways of analyzing traces or imprints left voluntarily or involuntarily in the digital environment. In the approach of ours, as it replaces the standard logic-based data mining, we provide a new answer based on the mapping of philosophical models and mathematical models around a central concept, roaming. Thus, from Parmenides to Derrida that we can describe "traces as signifiers results of interactions with multiple technical devices which become space manifestation of a differance," through Ricoeur and Simondon reminiscent example, that "the identity of the living being is made of temporality, the path is both the world and subject," then we can make central the notion of roaming, like Ulysses in his trip / roaming to Ithaca; wandering as ontological building became the model for this work either entirely random nor deterministic but which we can then closer to our terms of use digital environments. Using that, we show how some digital tools can be a way for the individuation against the the trend toward divination and massification.
