I am all for SourceForge keeping their image as business friendly as possible. But this latest press release highlights one of the dumbest things I think I have ever read. Seriously, someone needs to be taken to task over this.
Apparently SourceForge is being renamed “GeekNet”. Yes, instead of having a name that indicates source code and forging something, we are going to see the title merge into something that sound like a social network. Geek-Net – really, this is the best you guys came up with?
Again, I get the need for a name change. There is a network of websites involved, so trying to capture them all with a new company name is kind of a big deal. But for the love of common sense, just because geeks are among those using your services does not mean this is how you name the company!
