    I've always thought that usernames should be something interesting, and NOT just your own name. After all, sometimes it is good to stay anonymous on the internet..bit late for me, on here, but you get the idea...

    Interesting you should say that - I'm reading a book about the differences between our internet persona and our real life one. Anonymity on the net is not as prevelant as you might imagine.

    I wouldn't assume anything you say/do online is annonymous, and act accordingly. As a bonus, sites like EduGeek can act as your online portfolio / CV - point potential employers to your profile to see how much knowledge you have about a given subject. I know that's a large part of the design and thinking behind StackOverflow - the site has just brought out a CV service, linked to your online profile, that allows people to search for developers with specific, provable expertise.

    Most forums I use a relatively anonymous name. This one, however, as we are sponsors, I use my real name (and give my direct phone number). Some of our staff (Robot is our sysadmin, ipballe is in support) have "anonymousy" names.

    Yes, I know it isn't completely anonymous for some people - but for me - I don't really have anything else out there except a locked-down facebook page.
    There are lots of companies now that 'manage' your info in the world, specifically on the web but linking it with everything else including appearance and behaviour - they call it 'Personal Branding'

    John do you really think I would think that? For shame. When trying to grab a clear image of Mr GrumbleDook from the video he seemed to have his hands on his hips. Watch it back It may just be me.
