What does “Avid Insight” mean?

The name originally came about during my undergraduate degree. A fellow student and I decided to try starting a website to post programming tutorials. I came up with the name “Avid Insight” partly to reflect the pursuit of knowledge, and partly just because it sounded quite interesting and original. We never managed to make the website we envisaged, but I kept the identity and eventually started my own blog.
