There's a good article from Wired about the effect of voice chat within online gaming. Personally, while I'm more than happy to use it while gaming -- it's pretty much a requirement when participating in a WoW raid -- I never speak unless participating only with people I know from a face-to-face milieu. I'm not really sure why, but that seems to work best for me.

I prefer “International Person Of Mystery"; that other one is far too Austin Powers-ish.

“International Being Of Mystery” has a better ring to it. An entity doesn’t actually have to be alive, and I’m willing to grant that much.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
