Well, it should IMHO give new people an immediate impression what it is
about. So it should try not to leave out important aspects.

Yes. And we don't have to care about somebody else using it already (at least
for now). Just creating new ideas.

"Speak freely" focusses on the idea that people can really speak freely
(with each other and without fear being controlled by someone sitting
behind the scenes). I.e. anti-1984 :)

So the conception I have is like "fearless speaking", "carefree speaking",
"unconcerned speaking" (well, my English proficiency level is not that
good that I can choose what the best direction is).
