Some people have told us that the word “Silent” in our name is not exactly accurate. Deaf people are just as noisy as hearing people, they say. Well, obviously they weren’t aware that the word “Silent” in our name is actually an acronym. It stands for: ‘Si’ for ‘Sign,’ ‘L’ for Language, and ‘Ent’ for Entertainment. Put it all together and you have the word “Silent.” But, our name isn’t the only thing that people are commenting on. They also are criticizing our logo. The words Silent Network were designed to look like a TV screen when the network was created more than 30 years ago, only TV screens aren’t shaped like that anymore. So, the big question is whether we should modernize the logo. There’s considerable discussion about this, so please e-mail us with your opinions at TheSilentNetwork@gmail.com. We’re considering holding a contest for the best new logo design, so keep checking back on our Network site.
