It was my idea.  Marianne Waage went to an independent high school named
Nova and worked on the newspaper there, called Vox Nova.  I always thought
that was a clever name...  Voice of the school, the New Voice...

When we were naming the officers (of which I also take credit for
root, devnull and the idea behind typescript) and what we were all
obviously in a giggly goofy mood.  I joked that we should have a Vox
Lugod, and those who knew about Vox Nova laughed.  Somehow we all
agreed that it was a pretty good name.

Your friendly Lugod secretary,
