A Great Conference Name

10:00 AM -- If you're going to go to an industry event, the last thing you need is for the organizer to come up with a really dull name -- one that just doesn't inspire anyone to drag their bones along to these shindigs.

Supercomm was a good name, I thought -- "Hey, let's go to SUPERCOMM -- it'll be SUPER!" It had some spunk.

For me, Globalcomm, TelecomNext, and NXTcomm just don't have the same jazz. And as for CeBIT? I like Germany, but...

I'm really gutted, though, that I didn't make it to Canada last October, where the Montreal workshop on Internationalized Software Testing had the guts, humor, and good sense, to call their event MOIST.

Now, that's what I call a go-to event name...
