[comp] Name shaving

Shave off some of those names.

What I mean ("of course") is, if you are an innovator (I'm thinking software) and you truly have invented a new thing (you likely have) and you and you find yourself obsessing over names and saying "not right" or "doesn't capture" often enough, please stop and think even more. Shave that name because you did invent a new thing and you are now trying to further invent a low-loss, high-compression representation of your thing.

If you want to incentivize adopters, speak to your crowd. "Flangry Birbs"?

If you want to be accurate, think real good and well, since your target audience is often other developers. Convey the fuck out of shit.
