Autobiographical Artefacts

To participate in MOOs and Talkers I have created "yred". The name comes from a feature from the now defunct web-based chat room Bianca's Smut Shack where the name "red" was made to appear in yellow type. Hence "yellow-red" shortened to the Anglo-Saxon hero-of-a-saga-sounding "yred".

On the talker Philly, yred recorded profile information which announced an interest in text encoding. It's an interesting bit of information that reads almost like a didactic poem:

structure - content - format
three important concepts
for developing an appreciation
for markup
Yred on Philly used the tag line "on a questless journey" to appear on screen upon entrance into a room. I still like the paradox of the wanderer without aim. Eternal browser.

And so for day 759
