  • Badgers are wise (Score:4, Interesting)

    Badgers are often portrayed as wise animals in children's literature, so they had a good publishing track record already...

    But what technology needs a Badger? It's got to be something tough and industrious in an understated sort of way.

    Interesting all my computers are named after mammals, by desktop system is "Marmot", the notebook is "Loutre", the small Linux box is "Loir" and the Sun is "Badger"- I wanted to suggest compact power.

    -- "It's not magic, it's work..."

    Sorry, couldn't resist...

    As an alumnus of the University of Wisconsin - Madison (where our mascot is the Badger), I would like to request that O'Reilly only use the Badger if the author is from UW-Madison, or at the very least, Wisconsin (the Badger is the official state animal).

    /me now sits back and waits for an offer from O'Reilly & Associates. :P

    Badgers are cool, but what we really need are Invisible animals on the cover of books.

    That would really be cool.

    Obviously, we'd have to have some way of showing that the animal is obviously there, since people wouldn't be able to see it per say. For example, we could have a man hitting an invisible great dane with a newspaper as it prods him in the stomach with it's cold nose.

    Now that would be something.
