How do you pronounce the “z” in Octopz?

April 23, 2007

In this video, Octopz CEO Barry Fogarty is interviewed by Neo-Fight at the Web 2.0 Expo about our online collaboration software. After Barry’s first take at describing Octopz, Neo-Fight guest host Tony Katz encourages him to try again, this time in English.

By the time Barry is finished explaining Octopz, Tony is visibly impressed, and likes our name and logo to boot. And as the interview winds to a close, Tony takes a moment to translate Barry’s pronunciation of the z in Octopz (“zed” in Canadian) to “zee” for the rest of the North-American English-speaking world.
