As I’ve said all along, “The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth.” Here’s more proof. A Michigan couple has just named their new baby as if it were a software upgrade. Read the article.
Jon Blake Cusack, from Holland, Michigan, told local newspapers the US practice of adding “Junior” or “II” after a boy’s name was too common.

Mr Cusack admitted that it took months to persuade his wife, Jamie, to accept the idea. His wife Jamie Cusack said she asked several friends if they approved of the name. All the men, she said, felt the name was “cool”. However her women friends were less impressed. “There’s a lot of new features from Version 1.0 [Mr Cusack himself] with additional features from Jamie,” Mr Cusack said.
