I’ve spent all day being asked by journalists “why is your blog called Quaequam?” To start with, it isn’t. It’s called Quaequam Blog! – the blog and exclamation mark are important. Secondly, it has nothing to do with latin (I should hire Ros Taylor as my personal spin doctor – she always makes me sound so glamourous) – those Grammar school years were totally wasted, trust me.
Frankly, I think I signpost the origins of “quaequam blog!” fairly explicitly on this blog these days. The clues are all these. Ultimately, the real reason I call this site Quaequam Blog! is that for 99.9% of the population it is completely obscure while 0.1% understand it immediately. All hail obscure, pointless in-jokes!
