The name of this web site comes from an interview I did in March of 2008. My name is Tom Collins, and I always get asked if I know it’s an alcoholic drink. This one lady asked if I would ever change my name to Ryan Coke (Rye and Coke). I thought it was pretty funny, and seemed like a good name for my blog.
If it helps, I was also born in Newfoundland, on St. Patrick’s Day, but I have never drank, which seems to confuse some people. I just never picked it up. No biggie.
If there’s anything else you would like to know, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
