I was still in my twenties when I came up with mine (if that could be used as an excuse). I still wonder if people perceive my handle as pretentious. And I am part Irish so Irish definitely had to be in there.

Edo is the Japanese pronunciation of my first name (I lived in Japan). He is the super hero inside of me and the only non-derogatory nickname I have.

The Edo period is also when Japan shut itself off from the outside world... ;p


I signed in to the SEF with just plain old bill...never expecting to participate much. Then people started asking me about Asian SEO and I just kept signing up to other forums with the same nick. Odd there weren't more bill's out there to snatch up the name. Sometimes I wish I'd picked a more whizzbang moniker like the rest of you.

I use JasonD as it's ermmm my name, and I wanted to move away from a former persona that I had used for many many years in the cracks scene (with a little dabbling in warez) - I was known as CyclopZ back then which was a bastardisation from Cyclops as someone else had taken the nick on Undernet with the S.

Cyclops had been with me since about 12 - 13 years old when i had the world's largest zit at the bridge of my nose leading to it looking like the dominant and only eye.
