About the ‘StreamingMeeMee’…

StreamingMeeMeeOk, so the question that everyone asks is “Why ‘streamingmeemee’?”. No, honest, they do!

Two startups ago, we were sitting around trying to come up with interesting titles to include on our business cards. At a previous job I had been known as the ‘WebCrusader’. Of course you have to bear in mind that this was when the ‘web’ was a new thing and it needed Champions to crusade on it’s behalf. But I digress.

‘WebCrusader’ was clearly no longer appropriate; the web was doing just fine on it’s own by now thank-you-very-much and this gig was something entirely different. I had joined a CDN (the now long dead Adero, Inc) as ‘Principal Streaming Media Engineer’. Ok, so I can hear the wheels churning in your heads now, but don’t jump ahead!

So as we’re sitting there I’m thinking, “Hmm… streaming…. screaming…. screaming-me-me… Ah Ha!”. I started with ‘Streaming MeMe’ but that came out as ‘meme’, so that wouldn’t do. I added an extra ‘e’ to emphasis the meeee’ part and the ‘StreamingMeeMee’ was born!

It has the added benefit of being unique on any IM service, email server or other ID-requiring site I’ve ever visited. Joy!
