For the second act of this animal life, whose overture I assign to the selection of a personal name different from that given me at birth, c. 2006, I¹ have, (see discussion for more detail) chosen the Chinese name:
in which the second character can be pronounced as is sometimes my given birth name and 仁 as 性. 仁 may be replaced by 任 in deference to Chinese surname conventions and while SFAIK, 仁 人 卷 is unique, it is also probably sounds gender disphoric for speakers of some Chinese langs, as I was born and identify as cis-male.
The first scene of Act II would be the final of some 39 years of professional wage labor. Longer since first programming but more like 35 since I really started to have chops due to first professional job being all analysis and design in a classic waterfall DoD process, and a timeout in 82/83 before the Burroughs experience. Probably didn have my 10K concentrated hours of paid mastery till the late eighties. A closure and turn is the overture to scene two.
As 人 卷, a 13 yo at this point, have moved to Real™ name as preferred new nick either RenJuan or RenRenJuan, but the below are exceptions.
slycurgus got to Libera first but graciously released Lycurgus, which as it turned out I'm not using there because I got banned on the en:deadname issue. Since freedom to acknowledge simple facts like that is more important to me than live interaction on irc networks, I will restrict the former to networks under my control. The below are automated identities that should always be running short of outages and deployments.
Persona closest to myself, has the prolog nature.
Silent persona outside certain contexts where it has the lisp nature.
Persona that of Colossus/Guardian from The Forbin project, has the haskell nature.
