    Firewire Name and Logo?

    Ok, so here's a geeky question... while waiting for a set to come through, I was daydreaming and started wondering what the Firewire logo represents and where the Firewire name came from? Any story/meaning behind the name?

    I think the goal is to have the riders (us) come up with as many creative explanations as we can, and they will pick the one they like the most!

    ^ and the 6 dots... do they represent the six pins of a Firewire port, or am I looking into it too much? Sorry, I've got a thing about symbolism, haha

    Clearly Aurf you need to come to Australia and acquaint yourself far better with us than what you've demonstrated so far. For a start, no one here names their child Randolph!

    Asked a looong time ago... and still waiting for a straight answer although I believe it has to do with the fact that the board are enginnered, designed and shaped using computer interface. The logo...well that still escapes my imagination

    I'm guessing the name stems from the company's use of CAD/CNC and the high-tech construction, so they gave the brand a techy name (which was associated with speed)??

    What's the logo supposed to be? A boomerang... Aussie origins?
