Aad luck

I'm a fan of the convention in maths (at least some subfields), and perhaps other areas of research, of authors being listed alphabetically. It just seems natural and fair, somehow.

If I made a habit of collaborating with 5,000 authors I might consider changing my name to Aaaannan though.
