But there - look at me - I'm posting again this month. Oh dear, this could become a habit! Do you think it is contagious?

Well since the last post I've decided that I am a real blogger (albeit a bit lazy) - I have lurkers and everything! I'm still puzzling over the privacy thing. I found that if you google my name and Canadian pages one of the top choices gives you my Amazon review of Amy Lane's book. And if you include Calgary in the search my name comes up on the NSERC website (as does my Amazon review). So even if I wanted to be completely off the internet I can't be. If you google my name plus my university affiliation you come up with a link to my university site (very very plain) and the second link is to my lab. Yup, so much for anonymity. I think I will put a different user name on Ravelry but that is as far as I've gotten on decisions. In terms of university related things I want people to be able to find me as that is good for my job prospects in the future. And I'm not a private person in real life. There are some things you won't get me to talk a lot about and there are some things that will make me uncomfortable but to a large extent I am accepting - to each his/her own opinion.
