Show 1 -- What's In a Name?
« on: July 28, 2010, 11:17:29 am »
There's another post that Dave started before in the News category: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=947.0 but I thought I would start a discussion here as well. Dave was nice enough to give it a whole other category on the forum. We are looking for a name for the show if we continue it and if everyone likes it. Any feedback or names for the show are appreciated!

Why not plain and simple EEvblog Radio Show?  Or Analog Dialog?

Most of us are here because of the content, the general congenial atmosphere and Dave's colorful insight into general EE. The name of the show won't make a difference to technical people who read far worse titles professionally everyday.

eevblog is very bizarre as a word, but when you see it from a engineer's perspective it starts to ring nicely: ee for electronics engineer, v for video and blog for blog, it works like a mnemonic in the old assembly language kind of way.

I presume its a neologism.  When you search it on google, thus, it immediately comes up #1 to this forum and Dave' site.  If you create some English type of catch phrase, chances are it will be drowned out by similar words imbedded in other text.

Unlike other electronics web sites, the word 'electronics engineer' pulled me here because I wasn't anticipating endless rehashes of EE 101 fundamentals or extremely bitter and curmudgeon engineers on the usenets.

Personally, I look mostly for thorough impartial non-partisan or conflict free reviews Dave does and hope others would do the same so we can get a large repository of gear reviews, from test equipment down to components, dealers, price breaks, etc.,  Its very academic in a way, compared to the watered down and probably biased reviews one reads in trade rags.

Analog dialog is a newsletter from analog devices, but i like how you're thinking. The KISS principle!

Yes, KISS could then simply be "radio eevblog"

Or you could take the approach of a certain comedy trio and use a proper name that has nothing to do with either of you.

I listened to the podcast-without-a-name this morning, and for once I actually listened on my iPod! Having 2 people chatting really adds a useful extra dimension. Despite being involved with the Internet since pre web days, it never ceases to amaze me what it can do. I mean, me, in England, listening to a radio show made by one bloke in Australia and another in Ohio!

I have some ideas for a site name. I have checked whether they exist in web form, but haven't done a DNS look-up to avoid them being hijacked. I start the ball rolling with:

How about: TheDCLab dotcom
or: TheEELab dotcom
or: BangsAndSparks dotcom (maybe bangs might have other untoward connotations...)

Sadly, EELab dotcom/org/net was taken (somewhere in Hong Kong).

I am looking forward to the next episode!

TheEElab isn't bad. When you say it's almost too short though!

EE is E² (E-Squared), but to say it is a bit convoluted.

I definitely like the "feedback" idea. Haha, maybe "negative feedback"?

I also suggested to Dave something like "Today and Tomorrow" because we're talking across the day line but he made a good point about it not being too long of a name.

Thanks for all the brainstorming so far though, this is great!

Negative feedback sounds good enough, and I already have the T-Shirt!
But the domain is taken. It would have to be negativefeedbackshow.com or something.

The two front runners at present seem to be NegativeFeedback and BiasedFeedback. Someone already has negativefeedback.com though  >:(

And maybe anything electronics related with the word "radio" tacked on the end might work. Like say HobbyistRadio which is available.
