Why Bob’s Room?

For a guy named Matthew Klem, you might wonder why his personal blog is called Bob’s Room. There’s a very long and complex story about “Bob” and where it came from. If you really want to know that history, feel free to check out these pages:

Who Was Bob

What was Bob’s Room

Both articles were written quite awhile ago so some of the content is out dated but it definitely gives you the long history.

The short version is that Bob was a mascot I had in my rec room as a teenager. That room eventually became known as Bob’s Room. Most of my friends didn’t call my place as Matt’s place. It was always just Bob’s Room. It was also the name of the BBS I ran back in the day when BBS’s existed. When the time to branch out to the web came, bobsroom.com made the most sense to me for a website.
