Front-end developer at an online bank. I've been doing web development for 15 years. For most of that time, I've been passionate about UX, though I wouldn't consider myself an expert. It's a great privilege to be a part of this community and learn from you smart people.

You can also catch me on Stack Overflow, Twitter (@patrick_mc), and Github.

comment Why do so many websites have the restriction of user names starting with a letter?
Good explanation. I think that it makes sense that programmers used to thinking of names (identifiers) as beginning with a letter would impose the same limitation on usernames because they didn't put enough thought into it to overcome status quo bias.
