Jason bemoans the ignorance of many persons in misspelling his name. While I certainly cannot say I have experienced the same issues given that I have a single last name, I have experienced many issues with my name.
My full name is Kim Jason Joseph Benoit Siever.

Cameron asks everyone to post screenshots of their current projects. Veerle asks everyone to post photos of their current workspace. It only make sense someone would ask everyone to post photos of what they currently look like. I might as well be that person.
