Passing Users.Identity.Name to an object data source on Insert

I have a DetailsView and an ObjectDataSource that posts notes to a table.
I would like one of the template fields to pass the logged on username to the table on insert.

I've tried adding this to the InsertParameters of the ODS but doesn't seem to work.
<asp:Parameter Name="user" DefaultValue="<% User.Identity.Name %>" Type="String" />

What's the best way to do this?
