[geeklog-devel] Perception is everything...

Why not do a partial change? Call it GL or GL.Net for short while still
keeping the Geeklog brand.  This way we keep the domain name, etc.. Most or
our competitors names are not much better and our only problem (IMO) is the
term geek in the name may turn off the non techie (= customer).


What I think we should maybe change is our title "The Ultimate Weblog
System" to something more descriptive? This would be easier to do than a
brand new name.


Maybe would should get a new name for Geeklog 2 since this is a brand new
project and I can see both projects existing at the same time for a while
(when 2 is released).


I think a refreshing of the site design and Dirks staticpage idea for the
front page  (like wordpress) is a good idea just as long as we have a news
story section some where on the site.


Just some ideas.

Ok, so I've got a couple of points related to the "Is Geeklog Dead"

First of all, I'd be happy to do weekly or bi-monthly posts on gl.net about
successful GL installations.  The idea is simple, have a standard form
asking users about their decision to use Geeklog, what features are most
important to them, areas of improvement and whatnot.  I've got at least a
half dozen sites at the State of Iowa I could recommend and I know we can
dig up a lot more including some of our most noteable like Groklaw, etc.

Also, more controversial, I've struggled with the Geeklog brand.  I don't
doubt that we've garnered some respect in the open source CMS areana but I
have a hard time selling non-techies on "Geeklog".  In fact it is to the
point I just call it a "Content Management System" to avoid the silly looks
I get.  My question is am I the only one that feels this way?  If not, I'd
like to suggest renaming the project and allowing community participation on
picking the name.  I'm fine with leaving it as Geeklog but figured it'd be
worth discussion.  I'll go crawl under a rock now...
