AKA

Okay, so the internets are in an uproar about Google Plus’s real name policy. Okay, maybe not uproar. Maybe a Twitter.

What do you guys think? I’m of the mind that there are heaps and heaps of ways to move about pseudonymously online . . . set up a blog and post what ever the heck you want under any old name, that I’m not too stressed about Google being a big bully to serious activists. I also find it really curious that Facebook is escaping heat in all of this. Check out this article on the Guardian about how Facebook shut down a Chinese blogger page for using a nickname that even his friends use. But I want to hear what you think about this . . . drop a comment, yo!
