Byte Shredders - The Name

Our unique name often causes people to ask, "Why are you called Byte Shredders?" When we chose our name, we drew a bit of inspiration not only from Computer Science, but also from the world of music. A 'byte' is a well known computer related term used to measure data (megabyte, kilobyte, etc.). The second part of our name is borrowed from a style of playing guitar. Steve Vai, master guitarist, defined shredding as "The terminology used for someone who can play an instrument and has such a tremendous amount of technique that what they do just seems completely effortless and absurd." (Source: 'Not Dead Yet' Interview) After we put the two together, we knew we had the perfect name.
