If you’ve seen the username “tylerdave” and wondered: No, Dave’s real name is not Tyler.

The story: Way back when Dave was in college, most of his friends lived in a dorm named “Cutler.” In that building there were five other Daves. In order to tell them apart, each Dave acquired a name modifier. Because Dave lived in a dorm named “Tyler” he became “Tyler Dave.” Dave registered tylerdave.com in 1999 and has used “tylerdave” as a username most places ever since.
