Also I tried different potential usernames with a website that let me see in how many mainstream sites it was taken/available. SeerLite was the first one to not be taken anywhere, so I used that.

Whoa nice, had no idea

Yeah, it appears in the film “The Internet’s Own Boy”.

By the way, his username was not “明-3 NOMAD” but rather my real username gary_host_laptop, so he used it twice I think but in a different way which was “Ghost_laptop”, omitting “ary”.

I think you are the body that Swartz chose to continue living in this world.

flbn is shorthand for fleabane, my favorite flower. it’s a bit of a shitter and most people would consider it a weed; i’ve always been fond of the little guys though. i also just happen to think flea and bane are both kinda cool names.
