Who's to say this is my main account? ;)

My original account on HN is over 1500 days old now. I left that and used another which is about 800 days old for awhile. Now I'm shii and a few other people for a little while longer.


Sticking to one persona, especially one tied to the IRL you becomes annoying and restrictive. Much more freeing to openly speak your mind and be able to say things without every thought and action being traced back to one identity.

I've felt the same way, at times. I know things which are both interesting and counter-intuitive about the game industry.

But the information is inexorably tied with my identity, so I've concluded it's more prudent to have secrets and to allow the vocal uninformed to remain ignorant. In the end, it doesn't matter, and they probably wouldn't believe you anyway.
