Over 6 months ago I started with an idea to build an online portfolio and home to any of my development projects. I wanted a place to send people to find out about what I was working on and what I had done. I knew the name needed to be geeky to fit my personality, but memorable/catchy enough to work as a brand. I bought the domain http://onezerostudios.com thinking I had nailed it. A few hours later after a couple discussions and some more thought I realized I hadn’t. The problem with the name was that I wasn’t a studio, and I think the word “studio” tends heavy towards design.
Motivated to get started on the project and start moving a few things under a new name I spent the next few hours trying to decide what I was going to do. I was pleased with the One Zero part of the first attempt, it was certainly satisfactory for my geeky requirement, yet recognizable to non-geeks as well. OneZero.com was taken though…by some financial company at that, so I was going to need to work on it. I continued tossing around some names with a few friends and I fell in love with Think One Zero.
Think One Zero is the perfect embodiment of what this site is about, and I think it’s going to be a really killer name to use for my projects moving forward. The goals I have for this site are simple:
- Showcase my talents and skills as a developer.
- Maintain a resource for other developers as they move forward in their own projects.
- Give back to the community of developers with contributions to open source projects.
- Whenever possible open source my own projects for the community.
That’s probable enough writing/reading so…I’m happy to finally announce the launch of the site! Take a look around and let me know what you think and be sure to subscribe to the feed, sign up for the newsletter or follow us on twitter for the latest updates.
