A commenter at TDAXP asks (I think tongue-in-cheek) about me:
Wait . . . you wouldn’t happen to be Mao’s Swedish love-child, would you? No wonder you hide behind the Barney mask!
I am asked time from time why I blog under an alias.
Its pretty simple, I don’t want my views or writing to effect my current or possible future employment opportunities. Much to my surprise, I have come across vocal leftist in decision making roles at many of my employers. In the age of easy googling, any leftist checking me out would find out I am not on their side – I am not even neutral. For some, that would be enough to disqualify me.
Update: I bet Joe The Plumber wished he had used an Alias with the American Left all over his ass now (see this link)
