SteemSTEM has been around for years, and though we are not often recognised for our work, we have been supporting authors for years for nothing (in fact, we've been paying off debts to @lemouth for as long as I can remember). This is fine. We love what we do, and we believe in it.
Those who know me may also be aware that I have some pretty ambitious goals to accomplish with SteemSTEM but they could never be realized without sufficient support, and on a chain that always felt... held back. Now that chain has sold its soul to an entity who fundamentally disagrees with what it stands for, the signals have become as clear as a supernova in the night sky that it's time to make a move away.
But this post isn't directly about that. This is not a farewell post. Before I do that, we have another concern:
You may have noticed that our name has the word STEEM in it. That's kind of a problem. I've been bashing my brain around for a couple of weeks now trying to conjure up a name that we can use. Permanently.
It ain't an easy task.
I'm extremely grateful that @glass.wolf has offered his fantastic artistic skills to clean up and evolve our image for the migration to a quality never seen before, but we can't even begin with that until we have a name!
So, to me, it makes absolute sense to put this to the community. We are a community project of decentralised nature... it just fits.
Therefore, if there are any creative, literary minds out there, I am reaching out for ideas to get that *hivemind * working to become greater than the sum of its parts. Your idea may or may not be chosen, but at the very least, ANY suggestions will unlock new doors and directions to explore. So literally anything will be appreciated, even if it's some troll name by @trumpman.
Now, there are some restrictions, naturally. I'm pretty good at figuring out what we DON'T want, at least:
Some words that are related but too obvious: Knowledge, Wisdom, Science, Insight, and so on
I'd say I'll give a full upvote to any name I choose, but I feel that's somewhat pointless now. Perhaps you can get some hive-based reward in the coming days =)
For now, you can find us on Hive under the placeholder name 'HiveStem'. Keep an eye out!
Sorry, 'HiveStem' ain't gonna cut it.
And there I was, ready to comment on how awesome the new logo looks.
What about Alvus Animus, I am not great at latin but a quick google translate shows the following:
So ultimately it would be Hive Mind, Hive is pretty self-explanatory and Mind because we are the people of the mind, we think for the sake of thinking and the fundamental truth of our nature.
So yeah, my suggestion is: Alvus Animus.
Dynamo - Generate power. Sasana - I believe it translates into “teaching” or “practice”. Slingshot - I was thinking of the term when used in conjunction with satellites or acceleration, not the thing my father used to shoot pheasants with. :)
In physics or mechanics when something is moving, or when a project is starting: "set the project in motion" or "set in motion". Maybe:
The enzyme than untangles the DNA allowng it to replicate and allows cell replication...this is what keeps the human body going!
I saw someone mention Animus (mind).
Maybe Animus Helicase, untangling of the mind...

A full name is going to be a hard choice, but a set of acronyms that kind of make a word. COTAS: Culture of Thought and Science
That may be one way to take the name search, like how STEM was meant.
Time to do some thinking..
HIVstEm or hivSTeM could work!
It includes both HIVE and STEM in it!
decentraSTEM or STEMit
mindS H-mindS STEMminds o STEMinds
Hm. Naming things can be difficult. I'll keep it in mind, but for now this is all I have :)
All things STEM, ...kind of a far reach, but also a play on Omniscient.
Hi @mobbs :)
I like @enforcer48's , @eei's and @distantsignals' suggestions. NOT @trumpman's !!
I have edited this. I reread my comment and it felt a bit unclear/unstructured :P
So, here I go again ....
Vidya or vidyā (Sanskrit: विद्या) primarily means science, learning, philosophy, knowledge, and scholarship, any knowledge whether true or false. Its root is vid (Sanskrit: विद्), which means "to reason upon", knower, finding, knowing, acquiring or understanding.
As for my own suggestion, I say a name with vidya within it.
I think the first one sounds better :)

My suggestion for @steemstem rebranding are as follows:

Wow, I'm hearing about this news and the name change. What about my steemit account? Should I open a new hive account to continue publishing?
I favor @acont s suggestion: sySTEM
for obvious reasons: Systemics is something other than analytics, it considers systemic thinking and viewing the world as interactive systems which are self-organizing and dynamic.
I strongly vote for it :)
