Today I became the proud owner of alexj.sexy following in the footsteps of people like Myke Hurley of myke.sexy. This is possibly the best $25 I’ve ever spent.
Joking aside, I couldn’t help but notice how stupid some of the new TLDs are. A sliver do allow for some creative and memorable domains but for the most part they’re pretty useless. Take, for example, the
.guru TLD. How many times in the past year have you referred to someone as a guru? I’d guess it’s a pretty small number.
I’m probably getting cranky over nothing here. Nowadays people don’t access a website via its domain name anyway so the new TLDs will likely be of little importance. Still, I find it funny to think that a board of people at ICANN looked at TLDs like
.cool and thought they were good.
