I love obscure bits of information about words and names. Today I was looking over the About Feeds page at Six Apart and I noticed a little box that explains the corporation’s name. The page on feeds is pretty comprehensive, if clearly focused on promoting the product’s ability to create feeds (XML) as well as any other text format like HTML, or XHTML, if you are interested in learning more about this technology I recommend at least glancing at the article.
Why “Six Apart?”
In honor of our two co-founders who were born exactly six days apart.
As a husband who is classically horrible about remembering dates, I hope for Ben’s sake that his birthday is the one that falls six days before Mena’s.
