I'm going for Noise Wiki since who is eligible for the status of researcher will likely be factionally contested, thus this is a bad name for a wiki

Um, though, aren't we trying to encourage stuff to be refined to the point where SOMEONE considers it "research"? Wikipedia articles are usually not good enough to be in an encyclopedia, but it's at least possible to say "that's not good enough to be here". One could ditch things from a Research Wiki for "not being researched", it's damn hard to ditch things that are just "noise". That name properly belongs to Development Wiki where everything is truly noise until it becomes code.
How about Code Wiki or Develop Wiki (this one you're reading), Research Wiki (the one full of articles of various levels of merit), and Publish Wiki (the one that actually goes to print, and has the status of "published material" either ads or editorial? Maybe Signal Wiki is just a bit too abstract, especially if the Consumerium buying signal is going to be more commonly "published" as a book or database downloaded into some worn device or checkout counter?
