Why 'Hindenburg'? "Why choose the name Hindenburg for your software?" is the one question we are almost always asked. Often it is followed by a number of 'crash and burn' jokes. In order to answer, we need some historical context: In 1937, Chicago reporter Herbert Morrison witnessed The Hindenburg Disaster. A German passenger airship, the LZ 129 Hindenburg, caught fire and crashed while attempting to dock at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station. Covering the tragic accident, Mr. Morrison created radio history as he gave the world’s first eyewitness news report. His professional response and accurate descriptions combined with very emotional response to this unexpected disaster have made the recordings a seminal moment in audio history. The Hindenburg Disaster was a tragedy, but it marked the birth of mobile reporting and expanded the possibilities for global communication. At Hindenburg we are dedicated to supporting the production of great audio stories, and this is why we pay homage to the Hindenburg Disaster.
