Clusters are for fruit.  —Stephen Ewen (Talk) 15:05, 26 July 2007 (CDT)

Yeah, that's actually what I like about cluster. It's a familiar word to describe a close grouping of related items (like grapes on a vine). Collection is okay; it's got the library and museum precedent, but maybe that's why it sounds too generic--like a non-decision. Infoset is fine conceptually, but for some reason it sounds like a product. When I say "infoset" I imagine those color-coded SRA reading labs we had in elementary school in the 1970s. My least favorite is notebook. To me it implies something more personal and informal, like a page where an individual Citizen (or end-user) could collect favorite articles with annotations and such.

The Seven Sisters.
Cluster can be used for many different things and it's versatility makes it my favoured name of the four. Stephen, you think of fruit but I think of star clusters, such as the Seven Sisters. I think it's the imagery one chooses that leads to the gut feeling (positive or negative). For me, collection has a musty feeling to it; something forgotten in a draw.

I think 'collection' is the least worst (it covers any kind of material), 'infoset' too techy, 'notebook' too much like journalism; but with 'cluster' I'm not sure people would know what it means. "See the Citizendium cluster on Biology..." John Stephenson 20:36, 27 July 2007 (CDT)
