Tom,
Regarding the specifics of who I am, I prefer to maintain a certain amount of anonymity on the Internet. I am more than happy to speak with you one on one and let you know who I am, but I would prefer to minimize specific Internet disclosures to the public at large that can be linked to my real-life persona, particularly when the details have to do with such personal aspects of my life as my hobbies, my interests, my house, my wife, etc.


This is smart. I was once a fairly politically active person (rather than the bitter dissenting person that I have become) who participated in many debates both in front of live audiences and INTERNET audiences and I have learned not to use my real name when talking about anything too sensitive. The most disturbing thing that ever happened to me was when a disgruntled opponent that I debated on-line went to extremes in stalking me; going as far as calling my home, being rude and almost hostile when my wife answered, calling where I am doing my graduate work and making up lies about me to try to get them to kick me out, and even making borderline threats such as calling me and giving me my "home address". Never in my life did I feel like I wanted to carry a weapon of some sort until then. We ended up moving and I terminated my on-line activism completely. It was very unnerving and disruptive.

That being said...Jericho is my real name. I thought about hiding this dorky hobby but as a physicist I find that most of my colleagues simply envy my stuff or fight to join my games - in other words we are all nerds and there is no point hiding it. I figure DF isn't a very sensitive topic but that assumption is probably still somewhat naive.

Bossman, I am traveling a lot this month and February due to a litigation that I am working on, but perhaps I will not be out of town when you visit. Shoot me an e-mail at ryandevoto@gmail.com and let me know when you will be visiting.
