    I believe Stack Overflow is a metaphor for... running out of space in your brain, so you have to ask a question.

    they should've named it heycanyouhelpmewithmycomputerquestion.com. that would've been smarter.

    How about coredump.com, then, implying that something has gone wrong (perhaps a stack overflow, perhaps a segfault, who knows?) and you're providing a description of the problem to someone who hopefully knows HTF to fix it?

    Atwood had a contest on his blog to name the site. You should've submitted and voted. Also, stackoverflow, and atwood's blog, codinghorror, are both great sites that I would recommend as good entertainment that you can sometimes learn from.
