I know that face; you're trying to place the name

This is kind of neat - a Java dynamic graphing program showing the relative popularity of names in the past century, especially compared to close variants. It's a fascinating way of visually dealing with the information, anyhow. More intriguing, however: my name (my real name) and my alias here are less than a dozen places away from each other in rank of use during the 1980s. Even when reinventing myself, it seems, I'm unconsciously a product of my era. (Via Lifehacker.)
