That'd be cool with me, but SO might not appreciate his personal "branding" being diluted that way.
It's really cool of him to offer up his creation at all for the community.
Our opportunity of taking ownership of a rally point shouldn't be taken lightly. I was thinking last night this is really the "personification" of
ATS or more directly our motto: Deny Ignorance.
So while the name wouldn't have to necessarily mean
that or anything at all, it could take it's inspiration accordingly.
Playing with the initials D.I. there's some good opportunities, and all I'm hoping to do here is inspire as all my ideas sucks.
But we could go whimiscal and friendly, or serious and authoritative, or even somewhat mysterious (which I like). Or a combination of all.
I think he's a friendly guy (this D.I. which I'm calling him for now), but one of those idealist superhero characters, full of bravado, but
excusably flawed. A little grandiose. But in a likable self depricating way. And with a depth of mystery to him, not readily identifiable.
Appreciation should grow over time, if not readily obvious, but there is an initial attraction. This is our personified face after all to the outside
My thoughts anyway. And remember we can put this guy on a pedestal now. He's ours. SO gave him to us.
Accordingly, I've been playing with latin phrases that sound like names with hidden meaning. Not to lead anyone but expand your brainstorming.
I'll throw out some of my bad ideas later.
