Today, via a Facebook group, I learned about namechk, a mashup which allows you to see whether your username is available on a variety of social media sites. Since usernames and online identity are increasingly intertwined, it's a useful service to have.

learninganorak is available everywhere except YouTube - where it has been taken by me! What would be nice now, would be a way to reserve the name in all those spaces in one batch!
