Requiring real names drags in all the broken aspects of the world's identity system, too - sexism, transphobia, etc.

Today I'm going to attempt to ride my 50cc Vespa from Boston to Providence. That's about 40 miles by highway -- but my Vespa's top speed is about 50MPH, and they aren't allowed on interstates. So it'll be all back roads. The weather looks great outside...it's gonna be EPIC!! Wish me luck!

Here we have http://cyclopath.org/, and I use that for scootering, as well as biking. Like you, I don't need to avoid all busy streets, and I can't go on bike paths. I don't think I'll ever attempt to go 40 miles on our Vino though, it only goes 35MPH....and that's if it's flat!

Story
Introduction
I run Placeblogger.com and do a lot of stuff at the intersection of news and the web.  I'm also a fellow at the MIT Media Lab's Center for Future Civic Media.  If you'd like to know more about me and my work you can check out my LinkedIn profile

I serve on the boards of several journalism organizations, such as the New England Center for Investigative Reporting and OpenCourt.us, and I'm also a judge for the Online Journalism Awards as well as the New Media Women Entrepreneurs grant program.  I have a sustained interest in mentoring women in the tech and media fields. 

I won a Knight 21st Century News Challenge award in 2007 and was the McCormick/J-Lab New Media Women Entrepreneur of the Year in 2009.  

Despite all that I don't identify as a journalist.  I come out of the high tech industry and my involvement with online media comes from my experience as a blogger and entrepreneur.  

My current focus is documented on my learning-to-code blog, Life and Code

I'm a supporter of GLBT rights and I have a crush on my Vespa.
