Bear with me on this. :-)

I'm documenting an application that includes, as part
of the application, a Contact component.

This component functions as a telephone book/contact
management module.

I've been told not to use "real" information, so for
the purposes of this manual, we've made up a fictitous
country, address, etc. Well, we want to include a
fictitous set of contacts. (name, title, phone#, fax#,
email address, etc.)

Now...I could use the universally-know "John Smith at
123 Main St.", or I could use...something else. ;-)

The question: have you, as the writer, ever used your
own name as the contact? It sure would eliminate the
problem we all have when showing our portfolios in

"Mr. Posada...how do we know that it was you that
wrote the content and that you aren't showing someone
elses work?"

Have any of you ever taken that route?
