[geeklog-devel] The Slogan which is a Claim

I also vote for not using Aptitude as a replacement name.

Shortening the current name to something with GL in it is probably


So, the question that is still outstanding is "what is the slogan
supposed to do for Geeklog?".  Are we trying to make a claim?  Are we
trying to make it catchy?  Are we trying to be clever?  


Ditch the "log" part of the name and make it simply gCMS.  The 'g' being
a carryover from bygone days and makes for good wiki fodder.


gCMS - Your content, secured.

I agree AptitudeCMS is confusing because of its similarity to the
package management application. But to say a brand name has to have
meaning in every language is limiting and has plenty of
counter-examples. Not only are there many companies whose names don't
have meanings in several languages, but there are plenty of brands whose
name has no meaning in any language.


If there was a great German name for Geeklog I'd be all for it. No
matter that it didn't have an English (or other language meaning).

Concerning "Aptitude"

It is difficult to take a word that has a meaning in only one language.
Aptitude is not an internationally used word. Mambo is and in the year
2001 the song Mambo No. 5 was a bestseller. I slowly begin to understand
how ingenious the naming of mambo was. It was only later that it was
renamed to mamboCMS.

So to me there is still the question if Geeklog will get an "add on" CMS
- GeeklogCMS? Then the claim would not need to repeat 'CMS'.
