On screen names and real names
Is this the obligatory "hello blogs.perl.org" post? I guess so. I will no longer be updating my old use.perl.org journal. Not that I updated it very much to begin with.
Which leads to my point. For a long time, I engaged the Perl community under my screen name "revdiablo", but I've been slowly migrating away from that in favor of simply using my real name. I haven't really thought about a way to smoothly transition, so I'm leaving my screen name on old accounts and using my real name for new accounts. Hopefully, at some point, my screen name will fade into obscurity.
Unfortunately, there are probably still some people who recognize me only by the screen name. Maybe they will see this and take notice. Are any of you one of them?
