Good thing I wrote about Blizzard and ScienceBlogs’ identity management problems on Wednesday, because both of them have already reversed course.
Seed removed Food Frontiers (the Pepsi blog) from ScienceBlogs after some of their higher profile bloggers started abandoning ship.
And Blizzard has cancelled its plans to publish the real names of posters on its forums. It is still using real names in the Real ID system, which I think is a mistake. Screen names are the answer, Blizzard. Trust me.

Sharing my real name with RealID isn’t a bad thing if I control who can see it, but the fact that friends of friends can see your details too still needs to be fixed.
