  • Pablo Defendini thinks this is interesting:

Blob, a contraction of “binary large object,” is a term that’s commonly used in computing to refer to some variable or file that can contain any data and whose internal structure is ignored by the program. A blob is treated as being opaque. A blob holds a file’s data but does not contain any metadata about the file or even its name.

Good definition of a blob.
