Some people use online identities to protect their real identities. To me this is sort of silly. I host a blog so I’m obviously fairly open about just about everything and have nothing to hide. I’ve used many different identities over the years but most have been variations on a theme to let my friends find me easily. I’ve gravitated towards using variations of my real name for services and social networks and variations on my old PlanetSide character for video games.
I’ve compiled the list below in an effort to document the many different identities I’ve had over the years.
Disclaimer: The identities only changed when I found other users with my same name so there is obviously more people out there than me using these names. As such search results are mediocre at best.
rand1094 – the oldest one I can remember (although there were older) created October of 1994 and still used today on AIM
PS if you do decide to search for any of them let me know if you find anything interesting.
