Why “Boranj”?  The usual mental struggle to find some unique word to name this blog that I’ll be happy with for a while, and it came down to this, “nuclearphyllis” (after the Tom Robbins character), and “experience junkie”, a phrase used by Dustin Boyer a couple days ago that  I like.  I tried boranj first and it came through — but what is boranj?

I first saw the word when Jeff Lieberman started signing his emails with “boranj”.  From,

1. having the qualities of an inelegant iterative step that works but will eventually be replaced by something better. 
2. of or like an evolutionary step.
3. having both functional and awkward qualities.

I like it.  Will be keeping this thought in mind as I enjoy writing in my brand-new blog!
