My wife and I are big fans and are also collaborators with fashion designer Jay McCarroll (he won season one of the Bravo TV series Project Runway). So, while thinking about a name for these somewhat alienish buttons, Zoe came to mind. And there you have it!
Well, that’s pretty nifty, I think. Of course, Zoe’s a name that’s cropped up elsewhere in science fiction, so it’s not a bad name for science fictiony buttons in a general sense. But it’s nice my Zoe was the one they thought of.
So if you’re looking for groovy buttons with a tangential relationship to me, well, there you go. I like ’em.
