The first thing people always ask is, what does Abscissa mean and why name your company such?
Before Abscissa, our trading entity name was Abinitio, a Latin adverb for "from the beginning" under which we held the abinitio.com Domain Name. This name was ideal for an entrepreneurial web design company back in the early 1990's. The abinitio.com domain was sold to an American software company back in 1997 and the desire for another prominent Domain Name resulted in a dictionary search for a name that would appear high on any alphabetical business directory. As for the meaning of Abscissa, if plotting a co-ordinate on a graph, the Abscissa is the notational point along the X axis, though here is a better explanation.
