F450 is the name inspired by Ray Bradbury’s novel “Fahrenheit 451”.
“Fahrenheit 451” is a story of a futuristic book in the near future, and its temperature indicates the temperature at which the paper ignites.
Fahrenheit (Fahrenheit) 450 = f 450 figuratively shows the point just before the substance “paper” fires and transforms into “a different thing”.
It means the boundary line between “substance (analog) symbolized on paper” and “non-substance like digital data”.
I’d like to do work that crosses both analog and digital domains, and it is called “f450” as a name indicating it.
