• Rebranding. Discussion of putting it up to a vote - Should we be known as Hack Factory
or TC Maker? There is a concern about having a name for the organization and another
name for the work space, that it is confusing and dilutes our brand name. Many believe
we should be just one entity and one entity alone. Chris, Scott, and Darren, will work on
voting system. Voting system will be out in 2 weeks, and will be voted on in the
following 2 weeks so it will be official by next meeting. The votes will be electronic
(email); the process doesn't need to be as complicated as the vote for the by-laws. Dave
will spearhead the blog announcement, discussion on the forum will be spearheaded by
Riley. Voting will be closed the at midnight Tuesday the day before next Board meeting
I know that opinions on this issue have been floating around for a very long time. I'm just surprised I haven't heard about this move to make an actual decision, at all.
I still get a little uppity about this because I am still undecided on which I think would be best for the group. I've always thought of the group as TC Maker but I've been referring to the shop as The Hack Factory for a solid few months.
It looks like the board will eventually be asking for our input. I don't need to incite any huge debate here since this is not where any decision is going to be made. I just wanted to make sure as many people as possible are aware of this so that they have the oportunity to make up their minds before being sprung for an answer.
