Are you good with names? Not me. I am good with faces. See them once, I will remember them forever … but names … not a chance.
If I am introduced to you in person I will happily greet you, shake your hand, be interested, observant. BUT will I remember your name?
It is nothing personal, but by the time you have walked away I will have forgotten your name. I understand that there is a medical term for this, but I can’t recall the specific information … and even worse … even when I TRY to remember, I fail. BUT online is different … we often don’t have the luxury of meeting face to face — so naming and reputation is paramount … and it all depends on text — on getting NAMES right.
I have had a lot of fun over the last 24 hours or so reading the banter between Adam "I will trade links for sex" Crowe and David "over the edge" Armano … but I must apologise for getting David’s name wrong. You have been a very gracious … and very funny. Now we are all waiting for Adam to start putting as much energy into his own blog as he does to others.
