I see this group is beginning to assume life even though I basically formed it and then exited for other pastures. Recruiting Animal (he of www.recruitinganimal.com
) recently advised me that this joint was shakin' and if I knew what was good for me I'd get my rear end back in here and pay some attention to what was going on. I always try to follow Animal's advice because I believe he is one of the most astute voices in our sphere. Two days ago he solemnly advised me that I should change my email address to maureen at namesourcer.com; I obediently and immediately complied - we'll see what happens next. I also decided to follow his other piece of advice.
That's what I am - a name sourcer. To be specific, I am a Telephone Name Sourcer, not to be confused with my associative brethren, Internet Name Sourcer. Not that the two don't cross over - they most definitely do! And they can happily coexist next to each other.
Now that we have that out of the way, why don't you tell me about yourself?
