Why is it called "bors"?


#1

It’s a reference to a 1953 sci-fi novel about the robot, Bors, that ran the world’s last surviving government. I’ve never read it myself; @graydon came up with the name AFAIK.

It also has the advantage of being only four characters long.


This was another topic made because someone searched for the meaning of the name and it showed up in the logs.
