Telsa, that conferencing system is the project I've been planning on releasing as open source for quite a while now. (I'm thinking probably under the QPL at the start.) Know what's holding me up? The name!

It's currently named Phoenix, but I've wanted to pick a different name for a long time -- I'd like something that has an available domain name to match, which really narrows the choices down! While browsing through some available DNS names, "gangplank.org" caught my eye. It's kind of arbitrary and meaningless, yet memorable and not a made-up word. Figuring that it would be useful for something, I went ahead and registered the domain.

I'm still debating whether I should rename Phoenix to Gangplank or keep searching for a new name. What do you think? (Anyone! Bueller? Bueller?) Any other name ideas? (Please, only names where a *.org, *.net or *.com name is available to be registered!)

Yes, I could release it under the current name, but it seems cleaner to rename it before releasing it, so I'd rather do that. As soon as I make a final decision on the name, I'll probably release the code shortly thereafter. Who knows? Maybe the certification police will even consider it worthy of "Journeyer" certification! ;-)
