“Lilypond-User”-A Nice Origin Story.

Something else I found that has a neat story in it.

Title for email thread:

The origin of the name lilypond

Some days ago I read something interesting (and/or amusing)
about the origin of the name Lilypond.

What was the idea behind the name Lilypond?

Where can I read the (surprising?) story?

Would you add it to the preface (Documentation)?

I think it was in the docs for Lilypond but I cannot seem
to find it though I have been searching for two hours:

—-
Google, http://lilypond.org/

http://2003.rencontresmondiales.org/program/view_topic.php?topic_id=16

mudela->LilyPond ./Documentation/misc/CHANGES-1.3

etc. etc. …
—-

The reason for the choice of the name was beautiful and
a little surprising: Lilypond was a place of peace? But I
cannot find the reference.

Thank you for the beautiful documentation – which has been
improved a lot since I started with lilypond-1.6.

Regards

How about the lilypond faq?

Why the weird name?

Han-Wen: I started Lily (our affectionate name for LilyPond) in
1996. Back then, I was in an amateur symphonic orchestra together with
Jan. I had a crush on this magnificent girl in the orchestra: her name
was Suzanne, she played both the flute and the cello, and (of course) I
thought she was very pretty.

At the time, Jan was dating Roos (Dutch for ‘Rose’ — she also played
the cello). I also knew about about a package Rosegarden (a GUI MIDI
sequencer and notation editor). When I found out that ‘Susan’ is Hebrew
for ‘lily’, I decided that calling the package ‘LilyPond’ would match
make the nomenclature of the rest of my life perfectly.

Some things don’t last—the two girls, the cellos and the orchestra,
all have disappeared from our lives. LilyPond however has survived over
time. It is a big, mature program with a healthy user-base and good
prospects. Best of all is, that we still have a good time hacking on it

Finding interesting things when doing searches on Google.

I was looking up lie because sometimes I forget what the spellings of similar words are. Sometimes I know them and don’t remember and sometimes I actually don’t know them.

Ly came up on Wikipedia as Libya and I being one that does not use Wikipedia looked to see who they referenced. One of the references was Ianna.

So here is telecommunication info on Ly.

“We in Berlin Know Walls [Do not] work”

I watched and listened to a video of a woman’s march from January 23, 2017 in St. Petersburg Fl. on Street St. Pete’s blog at:
https://streetstpete.wordpress.com/

There was a woman talking to the crowd on a microphone and she said that one of their sister marches in Berlin had a message for everyone.

It is and was:

 

“We in Berlin Know Walls [Do not] work”

 

The Tampa Bay Times said about the march that:

“A women’s rights protest of more than 20,000 people swamped downtown [St. Petersburg FL] streets Saturday in a rejection of President Donald Trump and his policies, shattering the record as the largest demonstration in city history.”

SLICE OF LIFE ON THE STREET

Taking an Instagram picture of a flower,
trying to anyway
with a camera that will not focus.
guy comes up.
know him.
How goes it?
I live here.
You point vaguely inbatwen the two houses in front of you,
He says here, pointing to the left
“Not the Bush”
Laughs on both sides
He is going to job, he’s says
You move on trying to remember which house is his by its relation to a house three doors down that is owned by a teacher.
Thats how we count these days, who you know and where they live.
