what's in a name

What's in a name - Why is it called Joomla?

 We all hopefully know that joomla is a misspelling of a swahili word meaning "all together" but do you know how we chose that name or what the cms formerly known as mambo could have been called.

At the recent Joomla!Day in the Netherlands I gave my recollections of the turbulent and traumatic process involved.

Sadly I was doing most of this by memory as I no longer have any of my own records from that time, but Arno, Jean-Marie and Johan helped to fill in some of the gaps.

I'll be making this presentation again at J&Beyond later this month and maybe by then I may have filled in a few more gaps.
