Why "Plan 9"?



Warning: it is a long and weird story which may disturb some parts of the 
audience.

Anyway, if you want to have some insight as to the fact that Rob Pike likes 
cult movies and names systems after them, read an article on Penn Jillet, a 
magician, computer enthusiast and Rob's friend,  from the Wired magazine:

I came after this during a futile attempt to find out:
 - Rob, exactly why were you on the Letterman show? As a roadie of Penn;-) ?
