I get domain renewals email almost weekly. If you're like me, you probably register domains for crazy ideas you have as frequently as you eat. Often, those ideas never see the light of day because you're too busy. Or you realize the breakthrough from your dreamy stupor actually isn't such a great idea after all. Sadly, those domains slip quietly into oblivion.
In tribute to those forgotten domains, here are some practical—and not-so-practical—ideas i've released from my cold grip:
- mergedownmedia.com: my first website. The name came from a play on a Photoshop command. It was like a metaphor for being able to merge down or condense ideas into… oh, forget it.
- experiencelayer.com: the companion website that never was for a talk I used to give.
- whyuseflash.com: I started this several years ago to evangelize where Adobe Flash really shines. As that list dwindles, so does my interest in actually creating this site.
- pastacheatsheet.com: My absolute favorite of the bunch. I often get confused about the difference between certain types of pasta. Who knows the difference between cavatappi and gemilli? I was going to create a mobile site and draw each type of pasta, so you could have your very own handheld guide to Italian dining.
What are some domains that you’ve left by the wayside?
