First, thank you for using Typo, it's always cool to hear news from our users.

The name "Typo" has always been a cause of trouble. There's a well known PHP CMS called Typo3, Typo stands for typography and so on.

We thought about renaming it at a time (at least 2 or 3 times), but we never made it, at least because renaming a project is a very long and tough task if you want people to be aware of it.

Maybe a solution would be to use typoblog as we do on twitter when tagging our Typo related posts. The other solution would be to write more doc on our website I guess.
