Do you feel like I do? Everytime I register for a site, like this blogging area, I have to enter my name. First of all, this is annoying. Why can’t I keep track of a single set of data, somewhere in the big internet cloud, and just point to it? No, impossible! We apparently need to create multiple alter egos in the cloud to survive in the digital jungle. And once you decided to create again a new alter ego, you get these questions again: username? Password?
As a username, Eddy seems a logical choice… No, already exists. Now I am forced to think of something else. Eddy Reimerink maybe? No, spaces not allowed, neither are capitals. Let’s try eddyreimerink. Phew! Done. Again, created a new alter ego, a username that is a non-existing name and different from all the other user names I use. How do I manage this data quality problem?
