OT: I know there's been a lot of disruptive changes around here already, but I need to mention this

I mentioned this in a thread a while back about Adobe's Creative Cloud blog on Facebook, but thought it deserved its own thread.

I haven't done it officially yet, but I've decided to change my first name to Derek.

Explaining why I've decided to do this would take a lot of text to explain well, but the biggest part of the short answer is, I have the exact same name as my dad, and would really like to have my own identity. Aside from that, I had a stroke right when I was born in the left hemisphere of my brain, and after learning more about how it affected me, my desire to do this was intensified- for reasons that are pretty complex but also go back to identity and self-confidence.

I haven't officially done this yet, but in "real life" and other places on the internet I've been going by Derek for a while now. I hadn't mentioned it here because I joined the COW a long time before I made this decision, and until recently haven't felt the need to point people to other places where I'm going by Derek. But now with this cloud stuff that's starting to change. I have a Tumblr account- which has been underutilized so far- (
http://derekandonian.tumblr.com/) and I thought it would be a good place to write about my thoughts on all this. I've also set up a Facebook page, which you can see in my signature, to spread the 6-month boycott movement over to there- and I didn't want people here to be confused if I sent them there.

So, that's my story. Hopefully this will clear up any confusion.

Greg Andonian, a.k.a. Derek

First Apple changes to FCX...then Adobe does the Creative Cloud.

And now you are Derek.

What's next? Purple oranges? I can't take this anymore...

And Roger McGuinn was Jim McGuinn - the next thing we'll hear is that Jim Morrison is dead!
