PJM, OSM, PJM huh?

Well, just when I was getting confused, OSM is changing its name again.

These kinds of hiccups should be expected in a startup although the suits that are referred to in the article certainly had their vast staff of lawyers do a standard search for available names. If they didn't, the suits aren't as savvy as you would think (they used Powerpoint!). If they did and the lawyers didn't anticipate this problem, they should be fired.

But it seems that the reaction from what will be Pajamas Media has been to face up to mistakes and move forward. At the risk of sounding like a self improvement course, mistakes are opportunities to learn, something the NYTimes forgot a long time ago.

Good luck guys!
