Anil Dash - Free Horiemon!

Horiemon! I don't even know what that is... or means.

Who is Anil Dash? Anil is a Vice President at Six Apart and a writer, geek, and New Yorker living in San Francisco. He is best known for his part in the development of the blogosphere. Six Apart is one of the biggest and best blogging companies in the world. They make TypePad, Movable Type, and LiveJournal. Here is a brief biography.

Anil's profession and personal life revolves around weblogs. He maintains several. His primary weblog is the self titled Anil Dash. His primary professional weblog is the Six Apart Professional Network weblog, a resource for anyone who deals with weblogs as part of their career. Anil also contributes to his company's News blog and to various other blogs they maintain on the site. Some of the other sites that Anil maintains are Pop Life, where he writes about pop music and pop culture, and his LiveJournal, though many of these entries are for friends only.

I'm also curious why Anil uses Horiemon as a title.
I have commented his blog questioning it but no answer yet.
