Why “Atomic Ned”? It really has nothing to do with Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, I was more of a Jesus Jones fan in the early ’90s. No, the name came from a random nickname generator that my friend Pete sent me a link to after declaring “If you’re going to play on our softball team, you need to have a nickname.” I knew that I’d have to use the “Atomic Ned” name for something and shortly thereafter I started a blogger page named “Atomic Ned”. I met Robert Duffy of Donewaiting.com and a few months later he asked me to move my “Atomic Ned” blog to his site, which I did. Duffy did away with all of the individual columns about a year ago and that was the temporary end to “Atomic Ned”. But I decided to bring it back and blow it up and that’s why this site is called “Atomic Ned”. It really doesn’t mean anything but it’s a name that’s stuck with me for a few years and I couldn’t think of anything better!
