You may know me as asvdveen, and that's my default username on most websites. Most of the times when I participate in an active community, people call me Veen. After a month of trying Hubski out, I found out yesterday that this username is still free (a rarity on the internet these days). I've asked mk if there was any possibility to change my username, but it is too interwoven within the code that it isn't really possible to change it. So better to change as early as possible!
I must say I really enjoy hubski so far. Quality of discussion is high here, and I get exposed to a ton of new and interesting ideas. Hubski feels like a fresh shower compared to the mind-numbing sameness of other social media. Above all, this community seems much more genuine than other sites. When I read a discussion here, it seems like everyone participating actually means what they say, and don't say something just to appeal to other people.
I am more of a lurker than a contributer ("do not speak unless you can improve the silence") but I'll be sure to stick around, under this better and shorter name.
