Well the shoe's on the other foot now.
We recently announced a project going forward that addresses the need for a Linux application that teaches all levels of autistic kids how to use a mouse. We are talking to several software coders, with one already on board. We have Ph.D's and a Masters of Special Education working with us to begin mapping out this software.
It truly looks to be moving forward.
So the question is, what will we name this software? It would be nice to have a cognitive path between the name and function but I realize this is much easier said than done. It should also be one syllable if possible and easy to pronounce. I've racked my brain trying to come up with cute acronyms and names...to no avail.
It would seem that naming a software app while traversing the minefield that is trademark and copyright law is harder than it looks.
So, the best thing to do now is turn it over to the community...people much smarter than me will find a name for it. We've asked the slashdot community for help as well. If you want to vote for the article to get full exposure, you can do so here.
On that I would bet a week's pay.
