We now know the identity of "Ted," the no-longer mysterious force behind VC ratings site He's Adeo Ressi, who cofounded Total New York, an early Web city guide, back in 1994. But where did his "Ted" nickname come from? Ressi revealed to Valleywag that his early users, a group which may have included FuckedCompany founder Philip Kaplan, dubbed him "Ted" to annoy him, since that was the name of Ressi's supposed "nemesis." Now that we know who Ressi is, there's one obvious candidate: Total New York cofounder Ted Werth.
