So, What’s up with that title?

It was very, very late at night.  Hours before I had read an article about how you should stake your internet brand and control what Google has to say about you.  Seemed like a good idea, so after some googling I had picked up a vanity domain, grabbed all of the com, net, org and info variations and decided to try a free blog with Google. 


After setting everything up, I hit the wall … what to name the blog?  I knew that the blog would be about technology and virtualization, but I could not come up with a good name!  As I checked a large number of random blogs, I realized I was not the only person with this issue.  So, I just typed in ‘Some Clever Title Goes Here’ as a placeholder, and headed for bed.


Most of my friends who checked out my blog thought the name was pretty funny, so I thought I would stick with it for a while.  I was having some personal business cards made up, so I incorporated the name into the card:

9 out of 10 people I’ve given the card to have loved it!  Every so often someone looks puzzled as they read it, but most laugh and make a comment about it.  For networking, it has been a great icebreaker!  It gives both parties something in common (humor) and lends itself to further conversation!
