A mod would be able to tell you. Who is Marvin?
He's the Paranoid Android.
It's the question feed.
The chatroom is H2G2-themed.
H2G2 meaning The Hitchhikers's Guide to the Galaxy.
So this room is called "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe", the main feed is called Marvin, the meta feed Slartibartfast, the bounty feed Zaphod Breeblebox, and the interstack feed Bablefish.
Have you read it, by any chance?
