What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

In some form or another, this has been my handle on the net for about 20 years. Those first few years on the internet were so great: anything you could think of, someone probably has a page about it. Maybe there's even a Usenet group about it. I felt like a traveler through the World of All Ideas. It's not that same internet any more, but I still feel that way, and I've come to accept that it's traveling too.

Also someone else got to this name first so I had to add the underscore. Curse them!
