why is it called miranda.org?

Miranda is the name of a backcountry camp at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarrón, New Mexico. The camp is named after Guadaloupe Miranda, who applied with Charles Beaubien in 1841 to the local Mexican governor for a land grant including about 2 million acres of land in what is now northeastern New Mexico.

Common but incorrect guesses at the basis of the name include the Miranda functional programming language and the Miranda v. Arizona decision that resulted in the United States' "Miranda rights".
