I tend to type pretty quickly and once received the comment that my fingers look like a centipede on the keyboard, and thus I was born. The '3' is for the ladies.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning. -Rick Cook

Well I might as well join the crowd.
In my effort to find a handle I first wanted cyberbrain, as my thinking is geared towards understanding technology. Of course that one was taken and I'd decided to do the complete opposite; make fun of most people not knowing technology. The skiddy sounding name was (in retrospect) just a bonus, while it took me a while to accept that. The picture and 'free your mind' are based on the name. I see everything as a puzzle and to do the thinking necessary for hacking and puzzles in general you generally need to think outside of the box.
So both have a double meaning: no technically orientated brain nor intelligence and the complete opposite of using it to think outside of the box.
