Anchalee Isis is a US software developer. It is well known in the world of technology as one of the most visible faces of the #ilooklikeanengineer campaign (I look like an engineer) that began in the United States to break down the stereotypes of what you normally think of when we talk an engineer or a software developer.
On Monday, he found he could not get into your Facebook account as he normally did. The reason is his name, Isis, which in English stands the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (EI for the use given to it in our country).
As someone known, his case took relevance, until an engineer working on Facebook noted and got corrected the error.
The case is part of a long list of people who have struggled to score in Facebook (including in Argentina) because their names or last names match words in any language algorithms that social network considered offensive.
Companies change their names
It is not something unique: in 2014, Verizon, AT & T and T-Mobile (three of the four operators largest mobile carrier in the United States) had to rename its mobile payment platform created in 2013, Isis to Softcard ( the service closed last March, replaced by Google Wallet).
Meanwhile, the distribution of Elementary OS Linux planned to call a new version as Isis (named after the Egyptian deity) but switched to Freya, to avoid identification with the Islamic state.
That same year, the Belgian chocolate maker renamed ISIS Libeert at the sudden drop in sales. Isis was also one of the names used to refer to hurricanes and tropical storms in the United States, but the term was removed from the list in late April; Ivette next year will be used. In March, just two months before the attacks in the drafting of the magazine Charlie Hebdo, the French band Isis Child renamed Angel’s Whisper.
These days the Isis Pharma analyzes change its name, published by CNN, after the attacks in Paris last week.
