List of REBOL/Services TLAs
Here is the list of suggested TLAs for REBOL/Services that were sent to feedback. I apologize if I missed anyone's suggestion. There were quite a few messages.
Please read my prior blog (138) on this subject.
Note that a number of these (like ASP, ESP, RSS, SMA, etc.) don't meet the requirement that there be any chance for our usage of the name to be highly ranked on Google. But, I wanted to publish the full list here anyway.
ASP: Asynchronous Service Protocol CSR: Communication Services for REBOL DSP: Dialected Service Protocol ESP: Extensible Service Protocol ESR: Enhanced Services for REBOL NSR: Network Services for REBOL RBS: REBOL Based Services RBS: REBOL Services RCS: REBOL Communication Services RDS: REBOL Distributed Services REM: REBOL Enterprise Messaging RES: REBOL Enhanced Services RES: REBOL Enterprise Services RES: REBOL Expanded Services RES: Relative Expression Services RIS: REBOL Integrated Services RIS: REBOL Intelligent Services RIS: REBOL Internet Services RNA: REBOL Network Architecture RNS: REBOL Network Services RRR: REBOL (like WWW) RSD: REBOL Services Definition RSI: REBOL Services Infrastructure RSP: REBOL Services Platform RSP: REBOL Services Protocol RSP: Remote Service Protocol RSS: REBOL Services System RSV: REBOL SerVices RUS: REBOL Unified Services RWS: REBOL WAN Services RWS: REBOL Web Services RXS: REBOL X-Internet Services SCP: Service Communication Protocol SDE: Simple Date Exchange SDS: Simple Data Services SID: Service Interface Dialect SIP: Service Interface Protocol SMA: Simple Messaging Architecture SMP: Service Messaging Protocol SSA: Simple Services Architecture SSP: Simple Services Protocol/Platform
I am leaning toward using RIS (easy to say) or RXS (hi-tech sounding and very few web hits), but I'm still open to discussion for a few more days.
It would be a big help if someone could filter this list and remove entries where a Google ranking would be difficult to obtain. This problem occurs if the TLA has millions of other uses (RES has 50 million) or is widely referred to as a single thing (REM is a rock band). But, RIS is probably ok even though it has 6 million hits because the top 20 hits are all for different things (at least here in US Google). If you will send me the reduced list, I will post it here. Thanks.
