For the most part... the space will have it's own characteristics, it's own image, and it's own personality. The space may very well dictate it's own name once we find it... you never know.

as for naming the group, I think twin city makers is a fine name... and see no reason to change it!

I agree -- for instance, Chicago's PumpingStationOne http://www.pumpingstationone.com/index.php/Main_Page -- who would have thought up such a name before they rented an old pumping station?

Thirded. Let the name come naturally.

Indeed. A good name will probably come in due time. I've found the best names/brands for things come up at the strangest times.

Returning to this notion, as we move forward with evaluating workshop spaces, I'd like to remind our members that most of us are in accord with the idea that our space *may* have a different name than "Twin Cities Maker" or "TC Maker," especially if multiple groups/interests would share a common space. I don't know if it has been suggested earlier, but maybe "Loony Lab" would be an appropriate, fun, and catchy name for a Minnesota hacker/workshop space. Also, this would make for a fun contest to come up with a storefront image!
