Peter, can I just say one, tinsy thing?  YOU SUCK!  *peace*

I personally think he makes the speculation more fun, haha.  His reluctance to answer certain questions and his habit of only giving enough information to say very little at all keeps me just as hooked as actually reading the stories.
You can think without acting and you can act without thinking... but which is worse?

Well, yes of course.  That's why I added the peace so that he knew I was joking.
"The custom of royalty in referring to oneself is to naturally employ the royal 'we'.  We are very happy, we are very sad, we are bored and suffer from ennui.  For a royal prince there's no such word as 'me', It's always 'we'.  So rightfully I should be two or three, don't you agree?"

I've seen speculation that Hoid stands for Hero Of Infinite Dimensions. Is there any basis to that or is that a coincidental acronym?

As of right now we don't know.  It could mean anything.  I mean, the others we have are a Hoid - Idaho and Hoid backwards is dioh which is kinda like dios. 

PS:: I added that to the post on the first page. ;]

Ha I do love the fact that he ages with each line.

But.. at least mine has something to do with his personality!  :D Now you're just getting lazy my friend.

Holistic Omnipresent Intelligence Deity

Bearer of infinite exposition.
I strongly suspect that he is strongly adhered to the Cognitive realm and not firmly fixed to the Physical (if I'm wrong, keep in mind that I have only read his commercially published works, Warbreaker drafts and sample chapters - and I avoid reading Spoiler cuts).

At least, that's how I view him until proven otherwise or until I gain more understanding of Sanderson's cosmology and revise this.

So, when I asked EUOL if Hoid is Midius, he gave me one of those smiley grin things and said that Hoid has many aliases, but wouldn't tell me for sure if he was Midius.  He also said no one would be reading the full Partinel text until it had a really good revision.  He also said it had MANY spoilers in it.

SO I'm thinking that it was one of those . . . You'll just have to RAFO things.  T-T
