ohhhhh... "chose," you mean.

My middle name is Basden (that is the name I go by) and the "i" just signifies that I am an avid mac user!

My parents gave me my name 38 years ago. That is generally how it works for most people. ;-)

My name is Brigid, my friends call me B, bebe sounds kinda nice, and 33 rhymes. It is just a coincidence that I am actually 33 right now - its been my nickname for a couple of years...

Good News Everyone!

 

I'm quite fond of Futurama. And the character Professor Farnsworth reminds me of myself.

 

At the age of 4 I made a flashlight with package sealing tape, batteries, and a light bulb. At the age of 7 I built my first radio. No doubt this was all influenced by the fact that my father was an electrical engineer and patent holder. I was a TV repairman in my neighborhood at the age of 12. I'm, well, geekish by nature.

 

And of course I am very, very old, and I do have serious health issues. In fact before some surgery I had in April I could sometimes be heard off stage yelling "Oooh, my tract!"

 

So The Professor was a natural for me.

I got mine through the Hemingway method; I made it up myself.

 

I'm Rob here and DigtalRob here and on Newsvine. My parents named me Robert. I didn't want to be known as Bobby when I went to college, so I told folks to call me Rob.

 

I thought DigitalRob was clever and self-generated, then I remembered that I listen to the Wizards of Technology where one of the podcasters goes by DigitalBill. In the end, I realized I stole DigitalRob from DigitalBill. Sorry Bill.
