So today during a design discussion with Audrey I decided to say goodbye to the term 'perceptron' for the more descriptive term 'blob' - but perceptrons are slightly more complicated than blobs - so Audrey suggested 'glob' as in Goo + Blob = Glob. In Perl parlance a glob is a generic handle on a thing - which fits what I'm trying to model. What's more:
Glob: 1. a drop or globule of liquid. 2. a usually rounded quantity or lump of some plastic or moldable substanceSo that decided it. A Perceptron is now known as a Glob™.
