In particular, I believe such a name is inconsistent with our community’s primary extended metaphor / narrative.
To quote just two sentences from Together we thrive:
In a sentence, we are not collectors of bees, we are the bees. This is an important distinction because all our metaphors essentially flow from this (not to mention our sense of beeing ;).
Within this context, I’d like to start a discussion on naming.
Within the extended metaphor of the hive, I think there are (at least) two sub-metaphors that might make sense:
- Some unit of Honey (for example a teaspoon, drip, or drop)
- Something a bee interacts with on the way to either making honey (pollen, flowers, etc)
Personally, I think there is more meme potential in the second - particularly around flowers.
Within flowers there is also a fun sense in which the 1:1,000,000 ratio also makes sense - in order to produce 1 pound of honey, it turns out that around 2 million flowers must be visited.
I’m sure there are many other bright ideas / interesting paths to explore. The main point being that there is a need for a proper discussion before settling on a unit of account that might be with us forever.
