extracted from this blog post, this gets my vote for official magnificently awesome Racket slogan:

"Racket: an organized Scheme"

> Racket is just an organized scheme. The name still brings up connotations of something nefarious. What is in a name? I'm good with it if it continues to run on a proper OpenBSD platform. Will Apple let something, so expressive as ‘Racket’, the honor of being available from their apps store, for use with the iPad? Now that would be the app to write, however, unless Apple has changed their minds, no interpretive languages, that I'm aware of, have made it to iTunes. I wonder if they would allow a syntax informed code editor to be offered for the iPad. If they actually could keep folks from hacking their product, then they might have my support; but they can't put enough restraints on their SDK, to adequatelty maintain system security, so why bother with the silly attempts at maintaining control. I believe the answer can be seen with clarity if one looks at a five year chart of Apple stock. If you wish to call it Racket, then let's make some noise with it. You really do need to offer for sale Racket logo'd posters, cups, t-shirts, baseball hats, and stickers for my four year old son.
