Having everything concentrated in one community is not good.

We agree on something.

I would never use my real name in an unsafe centralized forum such as this.
this forum in my perspective is the antithesis to bitcoin, the solution to a social problem that contributes to the underlying problem. Bitcoin as it's conception, is to strive to exist after the social problem.
Not to attribute problems to it's own concept and growth by retaining it's flaws.
A software dev with a full head of hair doesn't read his forums.

I'd be happy to revise my username and provide my information. My email address contains my name and is publicly available, anyway. My name is Mike Moceri, I'm a law student at Drexel University. I'm also working on a number of bitcoin-powered businesses, including Anonymous Academy.

I certain do have something to hide, but only to avoid identity theft and stalkers.  I don't post a home address, private phone number, or other private information here or anywhere.  I would strongly recommend the same precautions, especially to other women.   While there are no more dishonest or dangerous people on the Internet than in the world in general, when you post on a public forum you are exposed to a much larger number of people.  The odds almost guarantee that some of them are not people you would want following you home.

However, I post in forums using a nickname or handle simply because that is how it has always been done in the years I've been active on the Internet, which is roughly since it began.  Anybody who looks on my web site (http://www.ergosphere.net) can find my full real name, contact email address, and even my resume.   There is nothing about my interest in Bitcoin that I am trying to keep quiet. I think it's a fascinating and likely quite useful new technology.  I want to know more about it and possibly contribute to its success, not as a playground for currency speculators, but as a viable currency.

There's a huge difference from posting your name to posting your entire address... Just saying ^^

If you want to find someone, the name on the internet doesn't hide much.  Is my name real? Does it matter?  I'm easy to find and I haven't been attacked by a psycho axe murderer (yet).

True, Patrick, but unless I much miss my guess, you're a guy. :-)  Women who have spent any appreciable amount of time as single adults learn to be cautious about giving out personal information online.  I don't troll or flame in newsgroups, cyberdate (I'm married), or engage in the sorts of activities that attract unwanted attention, and receive a good deal less of it than most of my female friends.  Nonetheless it is an issue from time to time.  I would encourage anybody, and especially women, to be cautious about sharing personal information.  If a woman is single, it is wise not to share a full legal name because that can sometimes lead to an address if one is listed in public records anywhere.

Your point is valid, and it also depends on the person and what they are comfortable with.  Still, you don't necessarily have to be known by name to get into trouble - random people on the street can cause that easily enough.

I've been using mine since I launched TradeHill. I think this thread was a great idea as well.
As far as exposure it's not as big of a problem when you have a common name but some of us are one of a kind or close enough to it.

As a weird update, someone was randomly attacked here last week on the street - a couple of teenagers beat on a journo who was on the way home from work.  He died as a result.

I've made quite a few mistakes in my short time here but I've never been that keen on working for other people so it never bothered me to make mistakes and just flat out be wrong on some issues. If a crazyface like me can become this successful, let it be a lesson to everyone else that due to the inherent nature of hiding things, it will only be a matter of time. Be open from the start.

Should I do this?

I changed my name on IRC briefly to AmirTaaki and it just felt awkward and strange. I've been using genjix over 10 years now, and the name is a part of my identity. It has a rich history which I don't quite want to give up now. Like a warm blanket wrapped around me.

I don't mind my real name either. It's interesting and different. But genjix also means a lot to me as a faceless identity I grew as a person with. I kind of like to be anonymous sometimes. I will occasionally change my name on IRC and pretend not to be me or obfuscate my identity to new people. I spend a lot of time on 4chan. It has a nice concept where it is more important what you say, rather than what you do.

If there is a reason for me to switch though, then I will. It isn't a huge deal.

I've always had the desire to change my name to just my real first name--Bruno--long before that movie came out. As a kid, I wasn't to fond of it because the others kids bastardized the name. Back then, I was thinking of changing it to Frank. But later in life, I embraced the name as others expressed how different it is. When I conducted my shows in Nashville during the late 80's and early 90's, I only used Bruno, which proved productive.

As for now, I prefer to remain using Bruno as my real name on this forum, but I'm easily found in Sandwich, Illinois. If there ever comes a time that my full name needs to be made available somewhere, I will provide it to theymos, thereby having an authority know who I am. My last name is of Lithuanian origin.
