Pen and screen names
The stories behind a couple of mine
  • Serge (1994-2004): when I first went online AOL suggested JBeeler435243 or something like that and I said ‘yuck’. So I thought for a moment and used the name of the Russian Orthodox saint whose feast-day (using the Gregorian date) is my birthday. These days I use it at restaurants when a clear, distinctive name comes in handy.
  • The young fogey (2004-today): it fits. Old-fashioned but not establishment conservative; libertarian but not liberal.
From Elena Maria Vidal.
