über-geek band names
A while ago some colleagues and I (not 100% sure but Ant and Jon must have been primary accomplices) brainstormed a list of seriously nerdy computer/web development band names that we hadn’t seen anyone using yet, but we forgot to write them down. Just recording the ones I can remember for posterity.
If these phrases make no sense to you whatsoever, disregard this post and surf on along. If you’ve got some to add, well, there’s a comments link below…
- Kernel Panic (is that one even cooler as “Colonel Panic”?)
- Progressive Enhancement
- The Graceful Degraders
- The Character Entities
- WYSIWYG (pronounced “whizzywig” — I will really use this one if I ever play some of that space-jazz stuff again)
- Dubya 3C and the Validators
Crap, I’m already forgetting some of the ones I remembered that prompted me to sit down and write this. Must be past bedtime.

This post just reminds me of my favorite band name of all time:
I don’t think they’re around anymore but that always gets me.

Hee! That’s awesome. It reminds me of how band names often can also be good names for both fonts or cats. “C’mere little Wysiwyg!”

It might not be very nerdy but I always thought “Cream Of Pygmy Soup” would be a good band name.
