I Miss CTED

July 30, 2009

So, I never thought I would say this, but I’m sort of sad that the Washington State Department of Community, Trade and Economic Development officially has changed its name to the Washington State Department of Commerce. CTED (pronounced “Sea Ted”) was a pretty useful acronym. And now you can’t just say Commerce, because there’s a U.S. Department of Commerce, and you can’t say DoC, because that’s also the Department of Corrections.

I’m leaning toward “State Comm”, which sounds sort of fly, or “Wash Comm”, which is sort of dirty sounding… But I’m open to better suggestions!
