Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, August 19, 2021

Why indeed?

From The Police, Message In A Box: The Complete Recordings, extended liner notes on drummer Stewart Copeland:

And so Stewart grew up with no kind of opinion of himself. Looking back, he’s said: “I was a late developer in every respect. I was physically small for my age, bespectacled, utterly dreadful at my lessons, a real population statistic.”
(emphasis mine)

I can’t say I had the same experience as Copeland — I was pretty damn good at my lessons, for instance. More than anything, the term “population statistic” stuck with me, several years after reading those notes. I liked it.

As far as domain names go, it’s sufficiently unique that it stands out, while not being completely weird. And it was available as a “.com”, so that closed the deal for me.

It’s as good a website name as any. We’ll see how far it takes me (or I take it).
