Gravatars
Some of you may have noticed that when I leave comments there's a nifty little tiki icon next to them. That's my gravatar. You can have one too!

Gravatars (Globally Recognized Avatars) are a pretty neat system where you can have a single avatar image follow you from one site to the next. Once you sign up for a gravatar, any gravatar enabled site will start to use it.

The coolest part (from my techno-nerdy point of view) is that the gravatars are attached to your email address (actually an MD5 hash of your email -- so no privacy worries there). So long as the site records your email address when you post, the gravatar will just show up. You don't have to do anything special!

So go sign up for your own gravatar. All the cool kids are doing it.
