Weibo, China’s twitter is now going to require you to use your real name. Many people argue that political dissidence will be silenced from the fear that people won’t voice their own opinions, because they can’t do it anonymously. So begs the question: “What’s in a Name?”

I think it’s now time to resurrect the old Chinese practice of having more than one name. I mean, it worked for Sun, Yat-Sen, and people have called him somewhat of a dissident.
