Subject Re: [wadi-dev] Time for a name change?
Date Mon, 19 Dec 2005 10:20:53 GMT

I came up with a new acronym for WADI (only a slight change) on a beer 
fuelled evening in San Diego last week.

I wanted to see if it stood up to examination in the cold harsh light of 

"Web Application Distribution Infrastructure" -> "WADI Application 
Distribution Infrastructure" i.e. "an application distribution 
infrastructure that is called WADI".

It's a self-referential acronym a la 'GNU' - bound to cause 
head-scratching amongst the non-initiated and perhaps a trifle 'up 
itself' (like me :-) ), but ... also a move away from a web-oriented 
name that causes minimal disturbance...

Comments ?
