An old friend of mine used to say that. “A rose by any other name would whither and die.” What a fascinating notion that a name should have that kind of power over an object. I would like to be able to move that benefit into the world—to increase the goodness or perfection or superiority of a one by uttering a word.
In this spirit I have changed the names of a couple of things in my universe. My trash cans and recycle bins on my various desktops are being renamed Disposerator, and the Akismet (spam protection) plugin I use here I have renamed Spamerator.
I feel that my disposeration and my spameration have both begun a stronger course due to this vital pneumonic alteration.
