I respect Rollie's views and her privacy, however I'm happy (so far) to
use my real name in my avatar name so my students will know
it's me behind the controls when my avatar encounters theirs.  I consider
all I do as manifestations of the same personality, although I admit
the possibility of multiple personalities in a single mind and  find
Minsky's Society of Mind compelling.
