Hi all,

I know the whole Jabber name issue has been beaten to death, but I was struck 
by the use of the term in the following article (which is also mentioned on 
the jabber.org front page).
  http://news.zdnet.co.uk/software/applications/0,39020384,39117160,00.htm

"Jabber this", "Jabber that", and all meaning to refer to Jabber, Inc.  There 
is a brief mention of the Jabber Software Foundation, but I think the casual 
reader would have a hard time understanding the differences between these 
organizations.

I don't necessarily think that the JSF should have a name change, and indeed 
we already had a vote and there is nothing more to discuss there.  However, I 
think we can still improve the situation with better marketting.  _We_ know 
the differences between Jabber Inc and the JSF, so can we please beat up some 
journalists so that these organizations are accurately reflected?  In 
particular, the JSF should get a lot more airtime than it currently does...

Blah,
-Justin
