Who is Newsmachete?


I get asked this question a lot. But I give no answer. There are a lot of crazies on the internet, and I prefer not to identify myself.
I will say that I am an attorney. I will also say I went to top Ivy League schools, plural.

I am also fascinated by passage in Neal Stephanson's book, Cryptonomicon, where a character corresponds by using the email address "root@eruditorum.org", and the person he emails says, "Why won't you tell me your name?" And his answer is, "I already have. You just haven't attached any significance to it."

His name was Root.
It was obvious, out in the open, and yet hidden all the time.

If I were to leave a clue on this page about my identity, I would do it in the same way.
