Tuesday’s Daily Dropping Domains and Auctions and A Funny Graph

Sep 21 2010

I got to talking to a guy at the nursery yesterday and the world got a whole lot smaller.  Turns out, one of the original cybersquatters in the domain world is from Champaign.  A man that literally set the precedent of what is squatting and what isn’t.  I’ve written a little article about the guy going up later and although I haven’t met him personally, it’s a great story and just another reason why Champaign is the technological center of the world. OK not really but for a small Midwest town it never surprises me how many ways we influence the net.  This one local guy Marc Andreessen and his little thing called Mosaic really started something. Now onto the names

FunBag.com A lot of bidders and it’s not because it’s a 1997 domain.  I guess they see the brandability (not really a word but sounds great) in the domain.  I like it as well but already to rich for my blood

BirdGirl.com A famous statue from the Garden of Good and Evil or just a great birding name.

BadLoans.net Not that many people are looking for bad loans but they may be looking to get out of one

umDN.com 4L and a Dn.  Domainers love the dn

School2.com The only thing better than school is school2 (as long as it sells for under $50)

GoodTrades.com Stock trading WILL come back. Buy names like this while they’re cheap

NHBO.com Another nice 4L

    Looking forward to the post on Marc… At one time probably the most well known technical people in the world and has his fingers in an unbelievable number of technology companies…
    Twitter, Digg, Facebook, Ning, eBay, Skype… Last name should be Midas, plus it would be easier to pronounce 🙂
