Apologia pro novum nominem

I have decided to remove my real name from my blog, and have adopted the pseudonym "Athanasius." The reason for this is either cowardice or prudence--I haven't decided which. I have recently gotten a job in academia, and think that it is my duty to my wife and child to keep a lower internet profile. Besides, the opportunity to urge undergraduates to a life of virtue in service to the truth is of more importance than having my name appear on a blog, which is, at least largely, a project of vanity.

Of course, anyone who really wants to find out who I am can do so. I just hope to shrink the Google trail.
