Recently I’ve had cause to do some brainstorming for clients around new URLs. Ultimately, we thought of a bunch of decent URLs which were available but, for various reasons, we rejected. I thought I’d pass them on to the Internets, in case anybody has a use for them:
www.eighttrackworld.com (8trackworld.com is also available)
toquebox.ca (only good for a Canadian music site)
jointhepeacecircle.com (inspired by this bumper sticker)
That is, you still have to go register them. I’m just giving away the, uh, intellectual property.
Some of these break some of my guidelines for choosing a URL. That said, it’s getting decidedly difficult to find short, avaiable (or cheap) easy to spell .com domains. I saw a chart recently that illustrated this, but can’t find it now.
