Branding[edit]

If you care I'm supposed to do a survey to "represent my team's opinions" on branding so that technology's opinion can be conveyed to comms in a succinct way. If you don't care: skip this. If you think this is a path fraught with peril best avoided, well, maybe shout into the void now.

I'll just leave this here, feel free to mark it up, I'll respond to the survey today at 18:00UTC
