I call people by handles usually.
I normally just go by handle.
@ITsecJ Depends on the context; if we're talking in a personal context it'll probably be a handle, if it looks like a business-context conversation it'll be my name; by being physically present in public I have to accept the cross-association of identities.
@ITsecJ Just use your ham radio call sign. Make them have to use an FCC database to find your real name!
@ITsecJ depends. Am I there as a professional, trying to make contacts outside of the "hacker" subset of the industry? I use the name on my business cards (which for me is my given name)
Am I there to engage the hacker community, play the CTF, etc? Handle
When it's both, that's a challenge: I try to keep only loose binding between those two identities (you can figure out one from the other, but it's not something I advertise)
