I am a new comer to Erlang, I have worked with software only about 13 years
professionally. I have never thought that the OTP name was weird, instead I
learned where it came from. Infect I'll be leaning on the "telecom" part
for this: https://leanpub.com/functionalerlang

There is nothing wrong with showing where you come from, that helps
understand certain tradeoffs made in the language and libraries. If this is
something that stops people from looking further then I think you don't
want those people anyway, because they will be bombarding the user group
with questions that should be a Google/DuckDuckGo away.

My 2 cents,
