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.

The nickname I chose comes from my inadvertently regressing to English pronunciation of the letter Z during a discussion about "the zed axis" in my high school physics class (and has, unfortunately, nothing to do with the line from King Lear "Thou whoreson zed! thou unnecessary letter!"). The resultant nickname remained with me for the rest of high school.

The unanticipated side effect of this choice of 'net handle was that being addressed as such at the local MeFi#10 party - while feeling perfectly natural in ways that my other online cognomen would not - made the event feel like a high school reunion where I'd forgotten everyone and had to reacquaint myself with everything. Happily, I'd recently discovered the MeFiWiki and crammed beforehand.
