well, i personally don't agree. it just sounds good and i'm clearly not
claiming any connection. but, if this goes anywhere and somebody from
RiseUp feels bothered, i may change it to something less similar.

thanks for these comments!
These are both things i thought of, and will consider in the design. If
i progress with the project i'll open up all the design phase and ask
for comments at every step.  But before that, i'd rather have feedbacks
from people that might use it, to understand if this is something that
matches a need or just my perception of it.
