Why “Rebel Scum”?

The result of a long-standing joke, really. And not even funny. But it pays tribute to Star Wars, and any self-respecting geek would be remiss by not tipping the hat to George. In reality, though, I am somewhat of a “rebel scum”… being that the “rebels” in Star Wars were the good guys, but yet, always underfunded and on the run from the big bad Empire, thus the moniker “scum”. So to be called a “rebel scum” is, in effect, an honor.

UPDATE - May 13, 2006

I changed the name from Rebel Scum to my actual name - Lawrence Salberg. Why? Well, partly because I found my focus for the blog (centering evermore on small business operations, administration, and management) and partly because the world is full of people who just don’t “get it”. But I leave this post here in its memory. Maybe someone else can carry on the torch on their blog.
