*Update: Whoaaa, this blog is really old! Check out a more recent post on this topic here.
I enjoyed Step Two's blog post on "Three views of intranet names". The three companies discussed named their intranets "Max", "EON" (acronym for 'Entertaining Opportunity Network') and Buzz.
It made me think about the names that various ThoughtFarmer customers have used for their intranets. Here are a few of the ones I find interesting:
|Intranet name||ThoughtFarmer Customer|
|Spike||Guardian News & Media|
|our.outreach||Penn State University Outreach|
|The Amp||Sudler & Hennessey|
|Mondo||Mountain Equipment Co-op|
Many of our customers simply name their intranet "Intranet", as in "Acme Intranet". Others do a take-off on the company name, such as "myAcme".
Personally, I find names like Spike and Orange and Scrum have a bit more personality.
