Wedgewood Robot

In looking for a good name for today’s bot I googled “famous accountants”, laughing at the same time because who really thinks about accountants being famous. I wanted to name him after an accountant because of his large chest panel of adding buttons. I discovered the following: Josiah Wedgewood. Yes, that Wedgewood, the famous potter—he invented what we now call Cost Accounting. Thanks to a lucky combination of an embezzling clerk and a depression, Josiah was forced to come up with a system of tracking bottom line costs and profit. He used this system to determine the costs of his product, and was only one of hundreds of potters to survive the depression. So today’s guy is “Wedgewood”. I was going to keep his background simple, but decided to layer in a light image of some vintage pottery.
