A name for a system to be developed
What to call it!

Hi people,

I'm working on a `narrow-casting` system, and we need to think of a name for the little puppy :)

Anyone got a creative idea on what to call it?
Ofcourse, something of what it does needs to be in the name.

It may be something from a different language, as long as it is related or simply translated.

We're looking for something funny or catchy.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

Well, here's some off-base brainstorming ideas...

straw
tube
keyhole
slot
laser
pipe
comb
razor
slit
cat-eye
scatter
sow (as in seed)
plough
squirt
jet (eg bit-jet)

Here are some trains of thought for your own brainstorming - you never know what might send you off on an interesting tangent...

Words/actions:-

Filtered
Blinkered
Honed
Fitted
Tailored
Matched
Qualified
Suited
Concentrated

(I also like "Laser" as posted above)

Phrases:-

"Eye of a needle"
"tunnel vision"
"Cold Pressed"

Puppy? How about "spot" and variants?

I'm seeing a lot of suggestions that are not related to narrowcasting, I would like to see something related.

"Tunnel vision" is related, it's the same thing only saying it differently. But `tunnel vision` is generally not a good thing. (someone with tunnel vision).

Appreciating the suggestions though :)

and once again: my emailnotifications aren't working :(

Can you explain the term - I thought it meant something else (targetting a "narrow" audience")?

Or you could just call it 'Skinny'. (the inside story, the real truth. skinny and narrow are similar)

In the Navy people want 'the poop'. I wasn't in the Navy but I assume it comes from rumor chats on the poop deck. Hash, dirt, scoop, dope, etc.

broadcasting: bbc = britisch broadcasting company. television for everyone.

narrowcasting: same thing, for a small and `narrow` audience.

Have you seen those big screens in shopping centre's and stores?
That's narrowcasting.

That's the idea's I'm looking for :)

Swahili is usually pronounced exactly as it looks like and all the words I know in it have the emphasis on the first syllable. I don't know many Swahili words though :)

I like Digitalghost's suggestions best.
