Programmers, developers, managers and architects often use these in conversations, meetings and chats. More than often we tend to nod along, not willing to let our conversation partner know we've actually never heard of these Brook, Moore or Wirth characters.

This issue is very understandable: we tend to have multiple email addresses we use for this purpose, whether it be for school, work, or personal projects.
