POTENTIAL NAMES (Please voice your yes/no here)[edit]

Top picks so far[edit]

  • Hack Shack
I *really* like The Hack Shack. Great name! docksteaderluke 19:05, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
We'll need to put up a faded sign by the side of the road that says "15 miles to the Hack Shack". 65.39.12.154 19:20, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
I second (third?) that. The Shack and The Sugar Shack are taken, but the Hack Shack isn't. Reinderien 19:23, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
This one's pretty good. Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
Yes Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Hohm Base, or Ohm Base
Cokobware 01:25, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
This one is cool, but what about just "Ohm Base" or "Ωbase"? docksteaderluke 21:25, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
I like it. ΩBase especially Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
Yes: Ohm Base is a bit easier to spell, and it likely can be easy to put into a URL? Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
I agree on both counts. Empty-space 15:30, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
Ohm Base is now officially my favourite. docksteaderluke 19:53, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
It has a zen-like quality to it too... "ohmmmmm" Cokobware 21:06, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Sparklab
This is one of my favourites, and it isn't taken (surprisingly). Reinderien 19:23, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
This is pretty good. Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
Yes Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • TTL ("tech tech lab" rather than "transistor transistor logic"... or something like that)
I like this a lot - It could stand for Thunder Bay Tech Lab, or some such thing. Reinderien 22:22, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
all I can think of is "Time To Live" Cokobware 01:21, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
I totally forgot that TTL has both hardware (transistor transistor logic) and software (time to live) definitions. It's also (though less related to the lab) Through The Lens, regarding cameras. Empty-space 21:22, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Neutral[edit]

  • Hack lab
This was mentioned at the meeting. Reinderien 00:04, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
  • incub8
  • Wonder Lab
Cokobware 05:14, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
This sounds like a Disney movie. No. Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Teem Works
I don't understand. Sp? Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
No spelling error - teem: To be stocked to overflowing; To be prolific; to abound - it's a play on words. Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I get it. Like "teeming". Empty-space 15:30, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Thinkhack
  • Electric Pulse
  • Vital Connect
I don't understand. Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • (The) Shift Register (This one is so bad it's awesome)
  • (The) Waveguide
  • Node? Northern Ontario Developing Environment?
docksteaderluke 20:23, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
I like this too.... the nodelab. A lot, actually. Reinderien 22:26, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
It's techy enough without any polarizing effect. I get the sense of regional when Cokobware 01:21, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
"(The) NODE lab", "Thunder Bay NODE", "TBay NODE". Variations on the theme to consider. I like this general direction, though. Empty-space 21:22, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
Node is taken by Baltimore already, turns out. Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Contested[edit]

I think if we get one "no" for one of these it's out:

  • Creative lab
Also mentioned at the meeting. Reinderien 00:04, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
Infringes on "Creative Labs" - I vote no only for that reason Cokobware 01:21, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
Not bad, but the confusion pointed out above makes it a no Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Hacker Bay
No Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Silicon Bay
Both of these tie into the geography, not bad. Reinderien 00:04, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
Both of these remind me of The Pirate Bay, which is probably not the best idea, PR-wise. Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
No Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Lab Rats
An excellent suggestion from Anthony. Reinderien 12:51, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
This sounds more like the name of a group of people rather than the name of a place. docksteaderluke 20:23, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
True, so maybe "the rat cage" or something. Reinderien 22:22, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry guys, I'm not a fan of this at all. We're upstanding makers, not some vermin! Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
No Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Superior Hax
A name suggested by Shaun. Reinderien 13:14, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
Not bad Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
No Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Mindhack
  • Mindcreate
  • Mindmelt
MindNO Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
No Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Ignite Wire
I like the thinking, but it's grammatically odd. Our space is a wire? Empty-space 21:36, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Sudo Make, or Sudo Make Lab
No Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • function(generator) or function generator()
there are a lot of alternate meanings in this one (electronics, coding, social, electricity, ideas, etc.) Empty-space 21:22, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
No Cokobware 21:58, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
