Re: Quick First Look: DROID 4 by Motorola - http://www.droid-life.com/2012...
"Droid 5!" - Vezquex
Andy Bakun
Favorite sci-fi space ship names...
HeartOfGold.jpg
Heart of Gold from HHGTTG is a good name, but I always pictured it shaped like a running shoe, rather than a sphere. - Andy Bakun
Just about every name in Iain M. Bank's Culture Novels. I'll BRB with some samples. - Anika
Millennium Falcon, obviously. It's such a sports-car sounding name. - Rob H.
I'm browsing Larry Niven and Known Space on wikipedia right now, and there are some really good ones there. The Long Shot and The Lying Bastard. - Andy Bakun
Here's some for inspiration: http://conservationreport.file... Although admittedly, these aren't very individually interesting. Lexx is a pretty good name. - Andy Bakun
The Halo series has some good ones as well; UNSC Pillar of Autumn, UNSC In Amber Clad, Truth and Reconciliation, Shadow of Intent and so on. - Rob H.
Damn, those are good. Truth and Reconciliation reminds me of the weapon named Reason in Snow Crash ("I'm sure they'll listen to Reason"). - Andy Bakun
Okay, here's a few ship names: Size Isn't Everything, Hand Me That Gun And Ask Me Again, Youthful Indiscretion, No More Mr. Nice Guy, Just Read The Instructions, Problem Child, I Blame My Mother, I Blame Your Mother...there's a lot more. - Anika
You almost can't go wrong. Serenity, Star Destroyer, USS Enterprise, Starship Bistromath... - Vezquex
Ah, the Bistromath. Damn, I should have thought of that one. - Andy Bakun
i always wanted to see the Bistromath realised on screen. probly never happen, now. - Big Joe Silenced
Is the Hand Me that Gun And Ask Me Again referred to as just The Hand Me or The Ask Me Again? - Andy Bakun
Those Banks names are pretty funny. Is there some reason they're like that (those aren't humor books, right)? - Rob H.
I always liked the way The Defiant implied serious kickassitude. - Andy Bakun
I always loved the Star Destroyer names on the XWing games http://www.theforce.net/swtc... - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I don't know. I think the Culture novels are pretty funny. There's an underlying satirical look at wealth's role in society. The droid/human relationship is humorous, as the droids seem to be the Voice of Conscious/Mom. And considering the heavy violence, in which most of the ships are introduced to you, it's nice to have a moment of levity. - Anika
Also keep in mind that some of the ships are sentient beings and play heavy roles in the stories. - Anika
I liked "Nostalgia for Infinity" from Revelation Space (Alastair Reynolds). In the epilogue for Galactic North, he admits that his ship names have been inspired by the culture novels and other sources. - Matt M (inactive)
Ah, yes...Reynolds did have some great ship names. I totally assumed he was inspired by Banks. We named our daughter after a character in Revelation Space. - Anika
Anika, that's awesome. :) Just pulled the book to confirm: he actually said that "he bows to noone in his admiration of Ian M Banks", but "his ship names were a direct pinch from M. John Harrison's The Centauri Device, not the Culture". - Matt M (inactive)
Nice. I've never read any of John Harrison's work. If I had read that in the book, I would have searched it out. I have a bad habit of not reading the author blurbs. - Anika
I couldn't stop reading after that book ended, so I plowed right through the epilogue hoping to hear that he's planning on continuing the series, picking up some interesting tidbits. It's hard to reach the end of a deep series like that. - Matt M (inactive)
Good list, WorldofHiglet. Accuser, Thunderflare, Inflexible and Death's Head. - Andy Bakun
That ship-size comparison reminded me of another I really liked: Agamemnon from Babylon 5. Greek heros make good ship names. - Matt M (inactive)
Nostromo. - andrei_c
Reynold's Revelation Space naming convention used by the Ultras, transhuman spacefarers: Nostalgia For Infinity , Gnostic Ascension - Ken Chen
Matt, those books are good. I'm currently re-reading Ilium, soon to be followed by Olympos, but It think after I'm done with Simmons I'll revisit the Revelation Space world. - Anika
Ilium and Olympos were such a good read (read them recently after a re-read of the Hyperion Cantos). Loved the Mahnmut and Orphu storyline. I'm just about to start my first read-through of Culture tonight. - Matt M (inactive)
Serenity and Millenium Falcon are my favorites. Of course, I don't watch a lot of sci-fi with space ships (I watch more of the supernatural sci-fi). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Anika++ Ian Banks. My favorite was "Very Little Gravitas Indeed" - mikepk
or maybe "Xenophobe" - mikepk
I really like the Culture names here. Maybe I should read the series. The Halo names are great too. - Andrew C (✔)
It's a really fun series to read, Andrew. - Anika
Highly recommend Banks. My recommendation is usually to start with "Consider Phlebas", I think it's his first culture book and in my opinion, it's the most 'space operatic' of them. I think it's a good intro to the Culture. - mikepk
Anika, have you ever read Bank's non sci-fi stuff? - mikepk
Just picked up Consider Phlebas, after running into the ship names list for The Culture on wikipedia. Sounds really interesting. - Andy Bakun
It is a very good book. My husband seems to like Player of Games better. - Anika
Oops! Just read through this thread again and noticed Mike asked me something. No, I haven't read any of Banks non sci-fi stuff. I've been meaning too. - Anika
Does the Nebuchadnezzar from the Matrix count? - Roberto Bonini
Any of the Culture ships in 'Looking to Windward' - Toby Graham
This thread inspired me to start reading the Culture novels a few months ago. I have to admit that they are by far the best ship names. - Matt M (inactive)
I still have not finished Consider Phlebas, but I did start it... barely. - Andy Bakun
The Normandy from mass effect is pretty awesome. - Guschu

Gillmor Gang, recording live today 1pm PST participate at http://www.building43.com/realtim...
So I was trying to list what companies you guys talk about: Apple, Facebook, Google, Twitter - Vezquex
Is there anything else? ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Gray, our studio cat is already complaining. He knows a show is about to happen and HE's NOT HAPPY. - Tina Chase Gillmor
Where is the Gillmor Gang chat? - Doug Ellis
this is the Gillmor Gang chat... but show hasn't started yet - Tina Chase Gillmor
I have a new Google+ feature (suggested user list, just turned on) to discuss. - Robert Scoble
Tina - can you post here as the show begins? - Ankush Narula from iPhone
show has begun - Christopher Harris
You are in color for us - Doug Ellis
Doug: well that's good. - Robert Scoble
Metallica doesn't suit Steve - Francine Hardaway
I bet he said no - Francine Hardaway
I thought you couldn't have a brand on + yet - Francine Hardaway
where can I find this list? - Christopher Harris
THen I must be on the SUL - Francine Hardaway
I post Madonna's tweets - Francine Hardaway
hi kids - Aron Michalski
Hi Aronski - Francine Hardaway
What a de-motivator distribution seems to be - Francine Hardaway
Yay - discussion of the Google+ default list - YAY! - Allen Stern
hey Aron - Tina Chase Gillmor
Hi Tina! - Aron Michalski
I figured it would take 3-6 months for a default list - but they did it even sooner! The problem is that celebs have no desire to interact with normals. Twitter allows them to spread the message with just talking to, here they want you to talk with - that won't work. But what the freak do I know, I don't have 100,000 followers so my thoughts are useless apparently. - Allen Stern
You are right, Allen - Francine Hardaway
G+ over-weighting, very astute - clive boulton
Allen: they needed to change their suggestions. Telling me to follow Mark Zuckerberg, who has never posted, is funny but really bad for new users to the service. - Robert Scoble
hm, Kevin Rose's google plus page is result 2 for 'kevin' now (in an incognito window) - Kevin Marks
G+ integration with Google Apps - Ankush Narula
i find google+ a hassle to set-up let alone engage with. - Gregg
Robert - why in the heck do you think Cashmore and Zee fought to keep his account on google+ - because they needs it for the seo juice. - Allen Stern
Twiiter still go to communications medium for mois.... - Gregg
G+ for Apps = Chatter - Ankush Narula
My corp doesn't use Salesforce - we are using G+ though for internal sharing... - Max Headroom
I saw the ManyMoon team this week - smart bunch - Kevin Marks
I reall haven't been able to get into Google+ - not sure shy - Tina Chase Gillmor
http://bit.ly/pn4zc8 is the Schmidt /benioff interview - Kevin Marks
0.2c Developer community: SFDC attracts older developers, GOOG younger. Late middle still MSFT, Energetic Devs doing consumer web startups - clive boulton
considering how much scoble loves google+, it's odd that this chat is still on ff - Allen Stern
Tina: because finding people interesting to you is VERY difficult on Google+. - Robert Scoble
Apple is a business disruptor - not a business partner. Salesforce, Google, etc don't have the same latitude. - Ankush Narula
Allen: that's because it's hard to embed Google+ in web pages. - Robert Scoble
and yet - my first time back in months on ff and i can see how much better this still is than google+. - Allen Stern
tahnks scoble - Allen Stern
Exactly, Kevin nailed it - clive boulton
yea FriendFeed! - Gregg
taking over san francisco maybe... - Kevin Marks
it was a non-story! - Max Headroom
supposedly it was a fake story - Ankush Narula
the lost iPhone never turned up. The police say it never happened. - Michael Markman
Just trying to feed the iPhone 5 vacuum - Max Headroom
What, no world domination Kevin? - Tina Chase Gillmor
i saw an apple 6 demo unit left on a table in the whole foods near me - Allen Stern
My Droid just updated to Gingerbread, finally. Maybe that Motorola purchase has legs - Kevin Marks
Gingerbread? is it a food theme or a fairytail one? - Tina Chase Gillmor
all the UX changed... - Kevin Marks
oh and btw - i predict 60 days and google+ will have aggregation too. - Allen Stern
fun fact; the bit of Moto that makes set top boxes was once an independent company called General Instruments. Donald Rumsfeld was CEO at one point. - Michael Markman
Kevin - self mute if you can. its better that way if you control - Tina Chase Gillmor
As long as Android app revenues are lower than iOS app revenues - Android vs iOS comparisons are moot. iOS hardware profits are the bulk of smartphone profits. - Ankush Narula
I am now, Tina, sorry - Kevin Marks
the crane is getting further away - Kevin Marks
Gingerbread, mango, what's up with all the sweet food names? I guess those big Apple cats aren't interested in desserts. - Alex de Soto
tina, in either case, who is the fox? :) - Hilary Talbot
no problem Kevin - Tina Chase Gillmor
coming up: Amazon's Android tablets. - Michael Markman
"the crane is getting further away" - trademark this! - clive boulton

I'm still blocked - after a year :-\ - Ankush Narula
who's got a good source or blog post to recap this discussion about arrington & tech crunch issue. - Gregg
ahhh... well, Winer has had Steve blocked for years. Not sure about their "buddy" status - Tina Chase Gillmor
heh - didn't realize that - Ankush Narula
shame to see mike no longer part of Disrupt, i take thats no longer his baby now - Dan Rockwell

Major old journalism v new journalism rant - Francine Hardaway
They're lucky Arrington didn't leave completely. They probably became part of his fund to keep him. - Francine Hardaway
