Third Thought

What’s in a name?

Initially I thought that this would be an appropriate title for my blog. However the perils of joining the blogging community 20 years after the Internet opened were laid out bare to me. Such names were common place and some person had even ventured to pen a book with a similar title. This, thus had to be relegated to be merely the title of my first post. In fact the more that time passes, the more difficult it becomes to choose a name or get your voice heard because of course there are now more candies in the candy jar or as Moore would have said, more transistors per IC.

There were quite a few other candidates jostling for a trial to be the legend of this blog as well. But who cares? Nobody will know them ever. And in a few days, not even my own self will recall what those other captions were. Their candidacy was much appreciated and time will helpfully obliviate them for good. Fortunately there can only be one legend which is credited. And that credit, ladies and gentlemen, goes to THE THIRTEENTH THOUGHT. Curtains rise. (Slow claps)
