What's in a name?

atomicthoughts.com is a weird domain name evidently. But it is memorable, I hope. It won't be a place to discuss nuclear proliferation or the finer points of the SALT II treaty. No, it's atomic as in "small", "singular", "self contained".

One of the coolest concepts I learned of in IT is transactional integrity. (Coolest IT phrase: data granularity). Transactional integrity isn't necessarily very exciting, but it seemed like a big leap from PC maintenance or low level coding to enterprise level stuff. But anyway, I dig transactional integrity. But if it's an atomic transaction, there's no need for it.

And that's what most of my thoughts are, single brief entities. I often have brief thoughts, barely more than a sentence worth of theory, that feel compelled to be recorded. At least that's the theory.
