Thanks a lot for the slew of ideas and suggestions for the new blog name. After carefully considering several great options, we are happy to announce that we have a winner: “Turing’s Invisible Hand”. An honorable mention goes to “The Best Response”, which came in a close second. Both suggestions were contributed anonymously; I call on the contributors to de-anonymize themselves and take their place in history alongside Shakespeare and Dante.
By the way, originally I had in mind letting readers vote over the suggested names, and was fantasizing about devious voting rules and impregnable false-name-proof schemes. Ultimately though we decided that semi-dictatorship is the way to go. Nevertheless, I found it both amusing and helpful that people took matters into their own hands by “+1”-ing ideas. The moral: democracy is unstoppable, dictators beware!
