What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

"mondo dentro" means "the world inside" in Italian. I'm into the Italian thing for reasons of heritage and familial affection, and the phrase captures my general belief that most of us spend our time living on the surface of things. Change comes not from finding something "different" but of looking more deeply inside that which is already there.

There's a quote I like that says the same sort of thing:

"There is another world, but it is in this one."

-- Paul Eluard
