Once More, Let's Change the Name

Posted November 02, 2008 7:21 AM

It began in 1945 as the "Instrument Society of America" then changed in 2000 to "ISA-The Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society." Now certain ones in the 28,000 member organization want to change again, this time to "International Society of Automation." Even though the proposal was voted down last year, they argue the society needs to keep up with the times, and "instrumentation" in the name needs to be replaced with automation. Others don't like so many changes. What is your view?

I believe that choosing a good name is always good, But if you wish to change it again and again, that shows the organization have not earned a good name in its past work.

Should a person change his name? Even if his name contradict with what he is. I guess no.

In My own country I have seen a person naming garibdass, which means a poor man. Yet he is famous for his earned wealth, is he changing his name? Answer is no.
