For Those Of You Who've Been Wondering Exactly What The Hell The Name's All About

Nice Wired article on a researcher with a passion for the much-maligned liquer known as absinthe. No, I've never had any. The nickname is an old BBS handle of mine (as in, pre-web BBSes). I chose it because, you know, it sounded cool to an iconoclastic college sophomore. Mildly hallucinogenic, a strong drink with a century's worth of taboo-based mystique. Hell, it still sounds cool.

Ah, the BBS, relic of a bygone era. I ran my own in high school. Learning how to hook into FidoNet was such a a challenge and such fun. Made a lot of good friends there.
