Why Tinfoilhat? We originally purchased the domain name Tinfoilhat.com in 1998 with the intention of reselling it to the highest bidder (this was back in the high-rolling dot.com days). Fortunately, it drew no interest, and we grew to love it anyway as an attention-grabbing business name.
What is a tin foil hat, anyway? Urban legend claims folks with possible mental illnesses line the inside of their hats with foil in order to deflect mind-control rays. Wikipedia has an excellent description. For information on creating your own tin foil hat, see: Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie.
