Confusion

Ok, I feel I owe an explanation as to my choice of address for this blog since questions about it kept coming in.

In ancient Greek mythology (before the age of heroes, even before the age of gods), the hekatonkheires were three giants who possessed a hundred and fifty hands. They were the children of Gaia and Uranos and basically the first beings in existance after the chaos. Cast into Tartaros,

So while I could have chosen an address directly referencing the topic, I found it more fitting to pay hommage to these mythological entities. If we regard all the aspects that Oracle BI entails nowadays, you really need a hundred hands (or a hundred heads, depending on the source). And who would be better suited for a task like this than those guys.

Hope that answers your questions.
