Sound an echo to sense

· Weblog Concepts

In the comment thread for Burningbird’s entry called Echo Project for Poets , Joe Shelby points out that “Echo is already a name for a product … that just released [a 1.0 version] under the LGPL license.”
If the goal is to surmount pass squabbles, the Pie/Echo project should steer very clear of anything that could be called highjacking. Looks like the name discussion may have to go back to the drawing board. Too bad. Echo (Matt Haughey’s suggestion) kind of felt right.

True ease in writing comes from art, not chance,
As those move easiest who have learned to dance.
‘Tis not enough no harshness gives offense;
The sound must seem an echo to the sense.
