The project name is sort of an accident. I wanted to have a very short URL and so I chose the .cc TLD, which still had many four-letter domains available. The one that sounded best to me was nula.cc . In addition, nula means ‘zero’ in Czech (and other Slavic languages) and I wished that my presence on the web had a mostly anonymous quality to it. Also, I did not know what the project would become when I started it, so I thought it was good to start at ‘zero’. In fact, it the project name is not deeply significant, and even a little bit careless.
