the i* moniker is no worse than the e-* moniker (e-Zine, e-Business, e-Comerse, e-Trading, e-Crapola ...) that was (and still is) floating around, or the tendancy to stick a "x" in front of all things Linux. And its much better than the "web" and "cyber" monikers. (William Gibson even apologized for inventing the word "cyber") At least there not numbering it with a 2000 or calling it the Millenium portal ... These monikers a pretty much a Marketing "make-work" project...
