Why the name bluspider, LLC
As with most new businesses I had to chose a name, one that (hopefully) represented my plans and company goals; and it had to have a web presence that served as the foundation. One that represented our capabilities and allowed those capabilities to be spotlighted without having to rethink the name.
I’d owned the domain noderunner.com many years ago; but, my expertise at the time was in telecommunications, networking, the internet, and Unix. The idea behind that name was based on the telecommunications and networking concept of “nodes” and the image of communications between them. While I’d love to have used that domain, I no longer have it and quite frankly it no longer represented what I know now, so a change was in order.
Over the years, I’ve gained (and expanded) expertise in:
- Internet technologies
- Operating Systems (Unix, Windows, Linux)
- Microsoft Windows, and Exchange
- Security & Operations
- Systems Management
- Enterprise Architecture
- and more
It was evident the NodeRunner name was not enough. I had to have a way to represent the connectivity between all of that technologies and business.
Enter a spider web
What came to mind was a web, a spider’s web. Combine that with my favorite color and, well you get the idea. An image of a web connecting all the areas of knowledge with a spider navigating around it, building, enforcing what needs to be enforced, moving what needs to be moved, and synchronizing everything. Ultimately, ending up with a structure that serves his purposes.
Adding to that uniqueness (and to increase the chances of finding a suitable domain name I left the “e” off the word blue.
