The Naming Police at BEA arrived at new names that some felt were counterintuitive and difficult to say:
- AquaLogic Interaction (Plumtree Foundation) (aka ALI)
- AquaLogic User Interaction (Plumtree Enterprise Web Suite) (aka ALUI)
We've all put Easter Eggs in software -- what delights me is the easter eggs we stumble across in the workplace. I think that is why a lot of us are in software -- yeah, we're geeks, but it is really about learning the expect the unexpected in your everyday work environment. While it may not be obvious that the poem was an easter egg, it should be obvious that creating an environment that rewards creativity produces the unexpected, and the unexpected is what makes work fun. Which brings me back to the beginning, or the end I should say, of what was Plumtree and then BEA.
