I am a Utah State student, currently enrolled in a web based computer engineering internship, and a topic came up in class: "why is the software called canvas?" Does it come from "canvassing something out" like to plan something? Is it talking about how it integrates different ideas and aspects of student life together like a piece of canvas? My proffessor offered anyone who could discover the true significance behind the name a substantial amount of extra credit. I would like that anyone to be me. Any clue????
