Why “Cail Corishev”?
- I’m terrible at coming up with fake names. All my computers get named after characters from books too.
- Both names come from a favorite series of mine, though one is a person and the other is a place.
- When I searched for the phrase online, I found zero occurrences, so I figured it’d be easy to search and find references to myself later.
It’s not really a serious attempt to stay anonymous; I’d imagine someone who wanted to know my real identity could figure it out easily enough, especially once I get to writing regularly. It’s more a way to separate the topics I intend to focus on here from the lighter stuff I do on my personal blog, so I don’t have to fill my personal blog with disclaimers and explanations of controversial ideas for the people who come there looking for videos of my garden and such.
More about my plans for this blog later.
