Guest post by Ben: True Names poll

Lingster has kindly allowed me (benrosenbaum) to use her paid LJ account to host my poll. :-)

For those who've been following the story Cory Doctorow and I have been podcasting on his site, "True Names" (not to be confused with the original True Names by Vernor Vinge) ... we have a few questions for you!

(If not, you could still go listen to it. So far there have been five episodes, you can hear them here:
1   2   3   4   5  )

Here's the poll...
