from the identity-crisis dept.
This server needs a name! Preferably one of 1 to 3 syllables that doesn't conflict with something else in our community namespace (and that can also be used as a machine name in the foresight.org domain… "188.8.131.52" does not roll trippingly off the tongue).
A couple of names have already been suggested:
- NanoLog (since the Slash software running the site is a species of the genus that has been called a "weblog")
- ForeSlash (pretty self-explanatory, with significant geek appeal)
Please append your suggestions as comments to this message. Then we'll pick the one we like best; or if we can't choose, we'll run a poll.
Update: In the interests of making the server available to the widest possible audience as quickly as possible, we picked a name ("foreslash", suggested by Geoff Dale) and went with it. Thanks to all who made suggestions!
Update Again: We may not be able to keep ForeSlash as the name of this server… so please continue adding comments and suggesting names!
