I guess the only unanswered question from the first two seasons is Harolds real name. I wonder what the story behind that is?
They haven't mentioned his real name, but they did mention why he had to assume a false identity. As a teenager he hacked the Defense Department's ARPANET and published the code, which in the show universe is what eventually led to the creation of the internet (in real life ARPANET was
a precursor to the Internet). His friend Nathan said that Harold was wanted for sedition by the US government as a result. He was already using a bird-derived fake name by the time he enrolled in MIT, where he was known as Harold Wren.

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
