The guy creating the badge was horrified. He asked me several times if I really wanted this, and I confirmed. The Aph people behind me then gave their job titles as "Wizard", "Nerd", and some other fantasy terms.
Attendees would read our badges and exclaim they should have done the same thing.
Thereafter, this became commonplace.
I don't know if I started this trend, but it seems like I was the first. I wish I'd kept the badge, but who knew?

Personally I can't stand that type of name, and think the whole idea is silly and cringy.

I like it tho even if it’s a bit cringe. At least we all on the same mission while we working together.
The founder is ex-Microsoft and apparently, Chimp was a title given to Microsoft employees working on new projects.
