I have a lot of odd ideas. Most of them I just pass on to others, and see if they run with them. A few of them I pursue. Some of them I know are stupid, but they are so stupid I can’t get away from them.
That’s why I bought the domain name of deadcasts.com today. Podcasts delivered from the grave – after you are dead, to the people you specify. Or to the world. Could be video, could be audio, could be a favorite YouTube video.
And yes, I know there are things *like* this out there.
But a cool domain name is a cool domain name.
Even if I don’t ever build the exact idea – I’m not afraid of buying a domain name here and there. I wish I had done more of it in the late 90’s!
Here’s the thing about domain names – if you buy 500 of them at $10 each you spend $5,000. Sell just one of them for 10K (I have) and suddenly it isn’t stupid anymore.
But I don’t buy domains to make money off domains. I buy domains hoping someone interesting calls me wanting to build something off those domains. And I hope I can work with them on it.
I love building stuff.
