Is a journalist who reports on virtual events that happen in a virtual world still a journalist? If you choose to present yourself as a rabbit online, does that say anything meaningful about who you really are? I spoke with Peter Ludlow, founder of The Alphaville Herald about living your life—fully online.

I am an awkward person, and audio conversations aren’t always easy for me. I forget words, I stutter sometimes, I even lose my train of thought. Needless to say, the podcast format can sometimes be challenging, especially when I don’t already know the person I’m speaking to. Are these conversations valuable? Should I keep doing them? Drop me a line below, let me know how you feel anonymously.
