On Tuesday I did another radio interview about Google’s stupid names policy, as outlined in my expletive-filled blog post and an op-ed for ABC The Drum.
This time the conversation was with ABC 105.7 Darwin presenter Annie Gastin, in the context of the full range of unusual names. Quite fun.

I just cancelled my Google+ account (Nov 27, 2011) because of their stupid real name policy. I guess they wanted to make it easier for Government and non-Government stalkers to track us :-). So, anyone who has a nom de plume or in my case, a nom de cyber, will not be able to use Google+. And no, I’m not going to send Google a “mother may I” letter. Well, I got news for Google, I don’t need your second failed attempt (Buzz was #1) at a social network, and I am in the process of cancelling my personal Gmail account. I’m thinking Yahoo or Yandex…yeah.
