I was watching the season premiere of HBO’s Silicon Valley the other night, and it occurred to me that the main characters *might* be named in tribute to rock stars (as befits the show’s view of some SV software developers’ roles in the world today).
But my theory has some holes, so I am looking for help either filling it or killing it.
I feel like I am on possibly-solid ground with these two:
Richard Hendriks – Hendrix, duh – someone with the potential to change the game entirely
Donald “Jared” Dunn – Donald “Duck” Dunn
This one is dodgier, and may speak to my own biases (though somewhat like the character, this one would definitely be “minor-leagues”, compared to the first two):
Erlich Bachman – Eric Bachmann
But I’ve got nothing for these two:
Any ideas? Am I crazy here?
