What about paying out a bounty to one lucky individual who suggests an
alternative/new name for Geeklog?
Run it like a contest.  Although the bounty paid isn't HUGE, its sure
better than $0.
Create some buzz in the open source community and perhaps revitalize the
Geeklog core base of users to see that GL is not dead and that its
continually moving forward.
just my $0.02 worth.
