What's in a name?
What's in a name? Well, after some (let's say) deep thinking (and some tests to discover what's still free at the rather crowded blogspot domain) I chose patch.panel while I was browsing wikipedia (in English, of course) looking among terms of informatic science. To quote the wikipedia entry "A patch panel or patch bay or jackfield is a panel, typically rackmounted, that houses cable connections. "
Admittedly, there is not particular reason for my choice; I simply stumbled upon this word and I liked it since is a term that can easily lead you to think about connections, even in a broad sense: i.e., connections between words, between concepts, or even, between different branches of knowledge.
If I'll keep on with this little experiment, in fact, my intention (you guess?) is to talk about my principal interests: among these, in no particular order, I should include the keywords astronomy, computers, linux, mac os, music, creative writing... Other will follow, as soon as I recall them ;-)
Briefly, Patch.panel deals with connections. So I felt it could be adequate for my little blog ;-)
