Personally, I don’t have a Facebook page. I do have a Twitter handle, but I never use it. When I comment on an article or blog post, I am very careful about what I say (you never know when something you “type” in the heat of the moment can come back to bite you and my rule also applies to Voicemail and Email but I digress). Of course, when it comes to my friends and family and “me,” I leave it up to them. However, I do ask them not to use my last name in posts, photo captions, etc. And they seem to honor my request.

If you google or bing me, you will discover that I was once a co-author of an SQL book and you will be able to find out a few other details about me that I do not like the world at large knowing. However, considering how much you could know about me, I consider myself lucky. (more…)
