GitHub Name Squatting

For the first time in my life, I actually have an account on the internet that’s under my own name. ┬áIn all other cases, they’ve been nabbed by someone else first.

This account is under GitHub. How was I able to get it? It turns out that GitHub has a name squatting policy that can be found here. This particular user had created an account and then not used it afterward. The account was 3 years old. I contacted the fine people at GitHub and about 1-2 hours later, they let me know that the account was available for the taking. First come first serve. Thanks GitHub!
