We came up with a list of a hundred possible names. But it was the very talented Dale Harris from Studio Inc (who does all of our brilliant graphics and design) who came up with the name.  bHive has obvious ecological metaphor, but it also draws inspiration from the Beehive building in Bendigo, a beautiful gold rush era building that housed the Bendigo mining stock exchange. It was therefore the birthplace of the Bendigo mining economy (of course, before that we had the local Dja Dja Wurrung peer to peer economy that lasted at least 60,000 years). We want bHive to be the birthplace of a new Bendigo economy.
