Well, I know where I live, and I know my name..... So I went above and beyond and combined the two.
Theatre Technology specializing, at present, in Entrepreneurship and Innovation for the creative worker and artist.
I find that creating and supporting a Culture of Engagement and Sharing leads me naturally in the direction of imagination, creativity, innovation and invention.
In order to share as broadly and openly as possible I need to use my name and my identity openly.
Thanks for the Great Forum.
Bob Gaggle was the mascot of a company my friend and I set up in 5th grade. I forget what we sold, pretty sure we didn't sell anything. We were trying to think of a name for this character and came up with Bob, couldn't agree on a last name until one of us looked up and saw some geese flying over. (We weren't very creative) But I got my first email account shortly thereafter and couldn't think of a user name so I used bobgaggle. After that anything I signed up for online I used the name and have just kept using it. Only recently started transitioning away from it because people keep telling me its stupid haha
screen name in a game and just stuck with it.
theatre baby. I choice this so people known what to call me and they know what i do and a laugh for myself.
I just ran across this video, this was my first day on the job, last day of rehearsals in the Church studio, I was sitting in the "drum gazebo" back behind the back up singers. When rehearsals were over we got to load the trucks, oh yeah, the studio was up a flight of steps so everything got carried down.
The dreaded steps:
whipping out a red foam clown nose and just popping it on.
Sitting in traffic, standing in line, sitting in a meeting, whenever.
And then just sit there like, What?
One day I did that on stage while in my blacks.
One of my Union Brothers said "Oh My God, It's Darth Clown."
And I kept it. ;O)
-- so I'll pitch in as well.
My email domain has been at baylink since I registered it in 1994 -- back when that was still free -- so when I started needing user handles, that's what I used. Oh, the original source? A communications company -- well, a notional communications company -- offering what we now call "unified communications" around my Tampa Bay area.
The St Pete Times tried to buy the domain from me about 5 years ago -- for reasons locals will understand -- but it would have been such a massive pain in the ass to move everything that I decided they wouldn't offer me that much money.
vision quest. Had to find just the right fit......Then I gave up on that and grabbed this one.

The SP is mostly because eventually Speedy was already taken on forums (though in the dark ages of the interwebs - I was just Speedy on a lot of chatrooms) and I added the SP (special projects) because members of my crew were often just referred to as SPs.
stage name. I wasn't very good at making conversation with the audience. I still perform with the name, but now I talk to the audience
this is me in an online world and what I quest for as an individual in an environment with few small ponds.
pyro involved in it, so while waiting back set began getting to know the pyrotechnician. He happened to have an actual fireworks show coming up and asked if I wanted to be on his crew to learn more about it. I did and enjoyed it and wound up getting licensed myself a couple years later.
I do more pyro than theater, but our church started a drama ministry a few years back and since I had a background in SFX, a pyro license and a day job with an electric utility, I've wound up doing a little bit of everything in the tech side of the productions.
web app for theatre directors/stage managers that I built in 2016. I posted a board topic about its features so if you want to know more, give that a read-thru or visit the website.
Derek, interesting that you mention MOE. About 60 yrs ago in Cleveland I had occasion to end up working along side an IA crew (I'm not union) on a job. There were about 10 stagehands on the call, and every one of them called the other ones "Moe" for the duration of the job. And every time, the correct "Moe" responded. Absolutely amazing. And I noted the "Moe" thing on other jobs around that time, too. Is this "Moe" an IA thing? I've never heard it anywhere else.
