    So, here’s the thing: I have visions. (Wow, it’s a relief to be able to say that.) I have enough that I can rate them. I give it 60% that internet pseudonyms will all be compromised in the next year or two, rising to 80% by 2018 and a near certainty by 2020.

    What do I do about it? I came of age in an age where it seemed like you could be anonymous, and I said some things that I’m not proud of, especially when I was young and had a bit too much to drink. Lots of people did, but I’m still worried about being judged.

    How do I prepare for the Pseudopocalypse?
