Emergesque Readers: Care to "Register"?

I've noticed lately that some folks are inviting their readers who don't regularly comment to speak up and make their presence known. This sounds like an interesting experiment so...answer or ignore as many as you please in comments.

What's your name?
Age?
Significant other / kids?
How do you spend your days (job? stay-at-home mom?)
What's your country? region/state? city?
If you have one, what's your faith community?
How often do you visit emergesque?
Why do you visit emergesque?
Is there anything else you'd like to say?

And whether you "register" or not, thanks for reading.

Spend my days: Computer Sysadmin/Baptist church pastor
I'm from Champaign, IL
My faith community is American Baptist generally, I'm in the middle of transitioning to be the head pastor of a new congregation, so my "real community" is about to change.
I visit every day, more or less.
I visit because I find a lot of interesting commentary on the "emerging church" which I feel I'm a part of.

Why do you visit emergesque? To see if there is anything going on in the "emergent discussion".
Is there anything else you'd like to say? I believe the church is undergoing a reformation in praxis. I am an evangelical and do not believe that the emergent community needs to alienate themselves from the evangelical community. I feel I can play a role to build bridges between both of these camps which I love dearly and who both love the Lord.
