I’m happy to announce today that our main product, the Open Source microblogging server Laconica, has a new name.

StatusNet is the new name that simply reflects what our software does: sends status updates into your social network. We think it’s clear and simple, serious without being stuffy.

As part of this change, we’ve also made changes to the company itself. From here on, we’ll be known as StatusNet, Inc. showing the renewed concentration on our core product.

So like, is the software now known as StatusNet, or will it still be named Laconica?

I suppose every rebranding is risky, and some rebranding attempts are simply necessary and worth the risk… Besides, Laconica as a name is not widely known outside of the Open Source / Free Software circles…

So take note everyone, the Open Source Twitter-like server software is now known as StatusNet…
