A Biblical canon or canon of scripture is a list of Biblical
books which establishes the names of books which are considered to
be authoritative as scripture by a particular religious community,
generally in Judaism or Christianity. (http://canonizer.com/topic/24)
What we're doing is compiling a list, not of authoritative "books", but of all "books". OK, we're also indicating the popularity of each one, and how they relate to each other, but it seems to me the main feature of canonization is authority. If our main feature is the relationships, consider this:
Consilience, or the unity of knowledge (literally a "jumping
together" of knowledge), has its roots in the ancient Greek concept
of an intrinsic orderliness that governs our cosmos, inherently
comprehensible by logical process, a vision at odds with mystical
views in many cultures that surrounded the Hellenes. The rational
view was recovered during the high Middle Ages, separated from
theology during the Renaissance and found its apogee in the Age of
Enlightenment. Then, with the rise of the modern sciences, the sense
of unity gradually was lost in the increasing fragmentation and
specialization of knowledge in the last two centuries. The converse
of consilience in this way is Reductionism. (http://canonizer.com/topic/24)
"Consilience" usually arises in the context of science, while this is about peoples opinions. Also, consilience domain names under the major TLDs have already gone. So how about this: "Consilient Points of View" as the long version, perhaps rarely spelled out, with "Consilients" as the short version, which is still available under major TLDs. We could then talk about "consiliating" where we currently say "canonizing". I believe that has very positive implications, with conciliation replacing authoritarianism.
Conciliation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process
whereby the parties to a dispute (including future interest
disputes) agree to utilize the services of a conciliator, who then
meets with the parties separately in an attempt to resolve their
It could be argued that few people know what consilience means, but I think, outside of a religious minority, the same applies to canonization, and I'd bet that most people who are familiar with the word think it means conferring sainthood. Anyway, it's not important that brand names be commonly understood -- what does Disney tell you about films, or McDonalds about burgers? All that matters is that, if the word does have any meaning, that meaning should be appropriate.
I see this as covering the software, with POV wiki continuing to be used for the concept (unless somebody comes up with something better). If we had separate websites for promotion of the software and our own applications, as it's arguable we should, then consilients.com would be for the software (or consilients.org if it has an open source license).
A possible alternative is The Consiliator, but unfortunately consiliator.com has been taken. Consiliator.org, .info and .net, however, are currently available.
