The publishers should consider a post you made back in April about a new Axiom: It’s helped me a lot when thinking about my identity on the internet. Thank You!

Axiom 1 for the world we’ve begun:

Your reputation used to depend on
What you concealed
Now it depends on what you reveal

The age of secretive mandarins who creep on heels of tact
Is dead: we are all players now in the great game of fact instead
So since you can’t keep your cards to your chest
I’d suggest you think a few moves ahead
As one does when playing a game of chess

Here’s my post:

Yep, that axiom's from a song by Momus from his CD "Ping Pong"... it's simply a great album, for those who've never tried Momus I can wholeheartedly suggest it. It's ironic lo-fi pop with catchy tunes and cool, digerati lyrics.
