But I'm open to other suggestions. Some of the candidates names included:

  • Mozilla Research -
  • Mozilla Invent -
  • Mozilla Make - has UNIX geek cred
  • Mozilla <Keyword> where keywords (to get the juices flowing): ideas, seeds, new, create, discover, find, sow, experiment, study, test, fieldwork, nest, probe, explore, check out, design, define, forge, original, generate, produce, crystal, unearth, dig, root, investigate, conceive, demo, show, prototype, protos, pros, eggs, nuggets, jewels, fuse, aviary

Definitely open to ideas on naming. Ideally, we want something reflective of innovation, has a reasonable sized URL and sounds good after the word Mozilla.
