Newnham has a Newname

DisplayLinkAs of about now, my old company, Newnham Research, has a new name. Welcome, DisplayLink!

Newnham is the part of Cambridge where the company started, but it’s one of those names which I only really intended to be temporary. That was three and a half years ago! Unfortunately, though, it proved somewhat non-intuitive for anybody outside the UK to pronounce or spell, so the change has been planned for some time.

DisplayLink is a much better name for what they’re doing now, and it sounds like an industry standard, which is what they’re going to become. I like it.

My heartiest congratulations, it’s so exciting to see how well DisplayLink is doing.

Did get any juggling balls with the new logo?

(Ha ha – my capcha word is “link”)

No – I haven’t got any of the merchandise 🙁

Got Something To Say:

    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:
     [This is not a link](

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
