Norton comes out

Staying anonymous in the blogosphere seems to be a harder task than what some might have expected. The blogger who writes under the nom de plume “Alicio Hernandez” got outed (or did he?) a few weeks back after months and months of speculation. Today, the second pseudonymous blogger, “Norton Tierra” of Stockholm Spectator has decided to uncloak himself after what has probably been an immense pressure. One can only recommend anyone that intends to become an integral part of the blogosphere and still remain anonymous to take into consideration what would happen if their true identity was exposed, and if that risk is worth taking. That said, even though I prefer to know who I am debating with, seems like a more fair game, I don’t approve of people trying to expose anonymous bloggers.
