Write an Elevator Pitch / Tagline

Note:

We are closing this domain naming thread. It is asking the entirely wrong question. See this blog post for details: Domain Names: Wrong Question

We're going to keep the name stats.stackexchange.com. But we WILL be setting up redirects from the more "popular" domains names (e.g. seasonedadvice.com to cooking.stackexchange.com, basicallymoney.com to money.stackexchange.com, and others as we go through the list).

New question: "Write and Elevator Pitch / Tagline!"

Continuing with my previous question taken directly from the 7 Essential Meta Questions of Every Beta, here's another. What should we call our site (and linked to that what should our domain name be)?

Blog post about choosing domain.

First round ended; the second will be announced soon.

Here is a discussion about how the second round should look.

There are still new proposals comming! To see them click "newest" tab below: alt text

    $\begingroup$ Just to emphasize one of my overarching views on the name: the site should be about "data analysis", and that should include all aspects of statistics (yes, including both bayesian and frequentist), visualization, machine learning/data mining, "data science", etc. The title should include all these camps. $\endgroup$ – Shane Jul 26 '10 at 14:29

  • $\begingroup$ I think of James Joyce in connection with this word (The Dubliners), but yes, it does have other connotations as well. $\endgroup$ – Shane Jul 22 '10 at 12:41

statistical-power.com

Apart from having interesting statistical meaning, it has positive connotations and is easy to use/understand.

My suggestion is Statistically Speaking, the .com of which is currently being parked for free by GoDaddy: http://www.statisticallyspeaking.com/

    $\begingroup$ The main problem with this (if it is a problem) is that it has statistics in the title, which could deter the machine learning community. It also doesn't get across the idea of other forms of data analysis (e.g. visualization). $\endgroup$ – Shane Jul 21 '10 at 13:08

  • $\begingroup$ +1 I like this one, although it might be a little too much of an inside joke? $\endgroup$ – Shane Jul 22 '10 at 12:28

  • $\begingroup$ I voted this down because I think it implies a focus on statistics and particularly statistical inference (as opposed to statistical prediction) while neglecting the other domains of interest for this site. $\endgroup$ – russellpierce Aug 10 '10 at 16:07
