Simply Jonathan

Name schemes

I have noticed that many software developers, in tweaking or porting their software, choose a name that’s similar to the original, albeit with a slight twist, often related to the change. The most relevant I can think of, is Beautiful Soup that got Rubyful Soup as its ported name.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
