Scientists in the UK recently built a $290 million polar research ship. They turned to the internet to let people choose the name of it. Sound like a cool PR move right? Wrong!
People voted and this is exactly why you shouldn’t let the internet name things: 27,000 people voted to name the ship ‘Boaty McBoatface’. That name received ten times more votes than any other name… Yes There could be a $290 Million resarch ship known as ‘Boaty McBoatface’!
