But I'm also a brand, or at least my name is.
I've spent the better part of a year becoming more active on Twitter. When I first joined it seemed logical to use @catelinp as my username since it's the same as my e-mail address. CATELINP was the first login name I had at Georgetown when I first gained Internet access on the GUVAX system (wow, that takes me back). It's stuck with me ever since. But in 2010 it's archaic and it doesn't say anything about who I am. So late last night I switched Twitter account names and I am now @PhilCatelinet. I've still got the same avatar and you'll still get the same witty commentary you've always enjoyed but now with a proper name.
