jira: origins

Finding by our scrummaster Eric Stolls about Jira, a tool we rely on heavily:

 I stumbled across this today.   Fun Fact about the origin of the name Jira - The product name is a truncation of Gojira, the Japanese word for Godzilla. The name originated from a nickname Atlassian developers used to refer to Bugzilla, which was previously used internally for bug-tracking.

Heh, Bugzilla was probably a play off of the old "Mozilla". My  personal homepage is still called "Kirkzilla" as a play on that, back when it was just the html view of my Netscape bookmarks.
