@@ -6,4 +6,17 @@ PetaPoco is a tiny .NET data access layer inspired by Rob Conery's [Massive](htt
project but for use with non-dynamic [POCO](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_Old_CLR_Object) objects. It came about because I was finding
many of my projects that used SubSonic/Linq were slow or becoming mixed bags of Linq and [CodingHorror](http://www.subsonicproject.com/docs/CodingHorror).
+I needed a data acess layer that was:
+
+* tiny
+* fast
+* easy to use and similar to SubSonic
+* could run on .NET 3.5 and/or Mono 2.6 (ie: no support for dynamic).
+
+Rob's claim of Massive being only 400 lines of code intruiged me and I wondered if something similar could be done without dynamics.
+
+So, what's with the name? Well if Massive is massive, this is "Peta" massive (at about 1,200 lines it's triple the size after all) and since it
+works with "Poco"s ... "PetaPoco" seemed like a fun name!!
