Lawrence A. Gobright was the first Washington correspondent for the Associated Press:
He covered politics for 30 years, and sent the first wire dispatch to the nation about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
I like adapting his name for this purpose for a number of reasons:

One unrelated trademark found: "electroless plating solution or bath"
GoBright Your Site!
[jayseae] I like the reasoning to do with publishing. Definitely nice. The feelings are good too. Having trouble with verb usage. This page is GoBrighted? Take my GoBright... please! GoBrighten your day. I can't seem to quite get it. Any suggestions?

[JasonLefkowitz] Is this really a problem with the appropriate intercapping? I can see it for Gobright, but does it still bother you UKers if it's GoBright? I would think the capital B would break up any unfortunate saliva-related associations
[JasonLefkowitz] Agreed on the page name. Is there any way to edit a Wiki page title? I'm new at the Wiki thing and it's not clear if titles can be changed or not...
[JasonLefkowitz] Discussion moved to a new page with a title that reflects the intercapping.
