My Curriculum vitae
The name of this web domain – a portmanteau word made from ‘gizmo’ and ‘astronaut’ – meaning an explorer of things you can’t put a name to.
A gizmo is ‘something unspecified whose name is either forgotten or not known [syn: doodad, doohickey, doojigger, gimmick, gizmo, gismo, gubbins, thingamabob, thingumabob, thingmabob, thingamajig, thingumajig, thingmajig, thingummy, whatchamacallit, whatchamacallum, whatsis, widget]. A device or control that is very useful for a particular job [syn: appliance, contraption, contrivance, convenience, gadget, gizmo, gismo, widget].’ (Source: WordNet)
An astronaut is a ‘member of the crew of a spaceship or other spacecraft that travels beyond Earth's atmosphere, or someone trained to serve that purpose.’, ‘From astro- + -naut. Coined from Ancient Greek ἄστρον (ástron, “star”) and ναύτης (naútēs, “sailor”).’ (Source: Wiktionary)
The first use of the word ‘gizmonaut’ appears to be in ‘programmers are almost universally gizmonauts’ by Lou Grinzo (Source: EXE Magazine, November 1999) and, with a different spelling, in a book titled The Gismonauts written by Keo Felker Lazarus (Published in 1981 by Modern Curriculum Press; ISBN 0695416073)
