I've built a computer system, but don't have a name for it yet. Metaphorically, it's sort of a machine or an organism built out of people.
One of my friends suggested that I name it "of the people" in Latin. (Ideally the name would work as a domain name, so something less than 10 characters or so.) Unfortunately, I don't know Latin, and there seem to be numerous ways to say "of" and to conjugate "people."
If you know Latin, how do you say "of the people" or a similar appropriate phrase for this context?
If you don't know Latin, or you know a language where a phrase like "people machine" or "of the people" sounds really cool, how do you say it in your language?
