And being in #marketing, I also know about the power of brands and names. So a long time ago, while brainstorming, we decided that we are building something that connects people. In secure ways. And the name became obvious. 2/n
Here's another insight I had a long time ago. Every piece of #OpenSource code is a standard. Not explicit, but implicit. It is hiding in stable APIs and long term sustainability of any Open Source project. Most of the time it can stay in that implicit state.
The problem with most (old school) standards is that they are created the other way around. First the standard, then the implementation. This has often lead to ambiguity that the "standard people" brush away with "read the standard".
