So does having a blog id that comes before 99% of other LJ's (in ASCII sorted order, statistic made up from no data) help me in any way?
*giggle* I wonder if I should change my name to Jessica Aaron or something....naaaaah.
If you're going to change your name, much better to do it before you start publishing. I know some people who did so mid-career (mostly but not entirely due to marriage, even though several of them are male) and it just ends up confusing everyone.
You should change your nick to 00000000 :-).
Or move to China, so that your coauthors would be called Xing, Xiao, Xu, Zhang, Zheng, Yung, Ying, Yu, Zhao, Zhu, Zhou, Wang, Wong, Wu etc. (I have seen references like [ZZZ05].)
Well, too late then: I'm already published as J.L. Nelson. *shrug* It has a nice ring to it. Do you know anyone who has published under a pseudonym? I think it would be great if S.C. Hardson published something someday.
Do you know anyone who has published under a pseudonym?
For "know" meaning "have heard of", Bourbaki?
Oh, well, I've heard of "him," but I was hoping for a more recent example, such as someone just doing it as a practical joke or to get an idea out in the open without risking one's reputation. I suppose I'm being very romantic at this point.
You appear at the beginning of practically every list of users (friends lists, etc.) that doesn't have me in it! Way to get noticed!
- 0olong, from the other 1%, who would have spelt it with an o if someone hadn't already taken that name.
Sure, for a definition of "practically every" that only includes the 20-something people whose flist I'm on...
I suppose it does at least put me very early in some group member lists.
