What's a Bytecodeman?

When teaching my Java class a few years back I was talking about Java's "revolutionary" platform independence by not compiling source code to the CPU's native machine language.  Instead Java compiles to an intermediate form called "bytecodes", and these bytecodes then get run my the platform's runtime environment.

I called myself bytecodeman and the name stuck.
