Kibo

Kibo is the nickname, username[?] and e-mail address (kibo@world.std.com or kibo@kibo.com) of James Parry (born 1967), a Usenetter known for his sense of humor, various surrealist net pranks, an absurdly long .signature, and an uncanny, machine-assisted knack for joining any thread in which his nom de guerre was mentioned (to "kiboze"). His exploits gleaned him a multitude of enthusiasts, who celebrated him as the head deity of the joke pseudo-religion kibology, centered on the newsgroup alt.religion.kibology.

James Parry lived in Schenectady, New York before moving to Boston, Massachusetts about 1990. He works as a typeface designer and for the world.std.com internet service provider.

Many assume his nickname is derived from the acronym KIBO, although Parry himself has repeatedly denied this.
