Well, it looks like the machinery of the name decision has been put in
motion. The 6th is coming up fast. I'll see what I can do. I really
think it's important to make an informed decision, even if for just
I'll probably modify the usual focus method into something that can be
done in a day or two over the phone instead of an in-person interview.
Tomorrow I will try and post my methods to a website so others can
duplicate the survey for where they live. I will try and get something up
by noon pacific time tomorrow. If you are interested in the results, I'd
recommend holding off on voting, I should have some results back before
the ballot deadline.

Agreed. You work on that. I will spend some time doing market research
among editors who do features, video, documentary, independent, news
production artists... and see what name will appeal to them the most.
See you on the 6th!
