The Company That Employs Me

When I first started writing this weblog: I don't discuss Politics, Religion, or Sex. I rarely mention people by name. I talk about work, but I don't identify my company.

Unfortunately, this means that I tend to refer to the company that employs me as, well, The Company That Employs Me, or, in short form, The Company. The former is unwieldy; the latter makes me sound like I work for the CIA (I don't. :-)

So, I've been thinking of what I might use instead. One woman, whose weblog I've read, has refered to her employer as AcronymCo. I really like that, but it's been done.

I considered DotCom, Inc as well as Silly Valley Computer, but neither really worked for me. Then I just played around with the words and letters of my standard nom de blog and reached what I believe to be a reasonable solution.

I now declare that the Company that Employs me shall henceforth be referred to as It's no less peculiar a name than many I've seen adorning buildings and web sites in Silly Valley and beyond. is an anonimized member corporation of the non-existent (but no less real) Silicon Valley Internet Conglomeration.
