[community] Seeking a name

I do enjoy a fun sounding acronym (SeeYeaL8R :) that one gave me a chuckle)

I guess part of the question will be - to whom do you want the title to
appeal? Will funders read the title and move on? Or are they likely to
glance over title and skip to the longer mission statement? Will those you
want to attract as learners/educators be the ones we want to grab using a
well formed title?

So many interesting ideas!

I do like the terms that have been thrown in - Park (that sounds like
fun!), Network, etc. I also like the point of using a domain to think about
title.
Another word to throw in - Hub
