That's how I heard it, too. Did we not have a discussion on this list not
so many days ago about naming a not particularly complicated use of
technology, with a view to getting it recognised by manglers as something
worthwhile to use ? As I heard it from bruce sterling, tim has a knack
for naming things, and the sort of marketting that works for geeky things.
I know from my own experiences that naming and branding are powerful
tools, especially in situations where people aren't used to finding it.
