The first thing my blog needed was a name. Coming up with one wasn't nearly as hard as I dreaded -- I only went through three iterations:
- Paradogma Shift. Not bad, but it doesn't really represent what I want to talk about. Besides, I'd like to save the word paradogma for other purposes.
- Overflow Dump. Closer to the topic. Also, the initials are a nice touch: whenever I "overdose" on things that are stupid, ridiculous or utterly unacceptable, I can go and post to my blog. But, it makes it sound as if my posts are garbage and I'd like the benefit of a doubt.
- Beard's Eye. A modest word play and an obscure reference to Cryptonomicon -- what more could I wish for?
