    Google’s Data Liberation Front name derived from a play on the Judean People’s Front from the Monty Python classic “Life of Brian”.


  16. Google Data Liberation Front
    The Google Data Liberation Front was started by an internal engineering IT team that chose its name based on the 1979 movie “Monty Python’s Life of Brian”, in which a group of characters in the movie called the Judean’s People’s Front are humorously unable to agree on anything – and tend to be very vocal in their disagreements. This mirrored the Google engineering team at the time, so this name has both realistic and humorous implications.

    (1) The Data Liberation Front

    (2) The Judean People’s Front

    From the horses’ mouth :-

    “We started as an internal engineering team back in 2007 and couldn’t agree on the name, so we came up with this name as an homage to The Judean People’s Front, the splinter group in Monty Python’s Life of Brian that spends most of its time bickering. In addition, we do see ourselves as being somewhat subversive, not so much within Google, but insofar as it’s unusual for a big company to work to make it easier for their customers to leave them.”
