The domains I registered for startups that never got past the domain stage.

I have a lot of ‘good’ ideas that come to me at random hours, so naturally, when those ideas come to me, I register a domain because I need a place for my billion-dollar startup to live.

These domains proceed to sit there, and rot for years. I’ve decided to open up the domain cupboard, and share my startup domains, that were simply too ahead of their time.

nowground.com

‘Nowground: don’t look back’ — a better, less discriminatory version of the background check that focused on the now. Only problem was I have no idea what that means.

policybit.com

“You do the tech, we do the policy bit!” I think the intent was an online policy generation tool with sliders to create policies based on risk appetite. But since I fell asleep just writing this sentence, it probably wasn’t a good idea.

silikanevalley.com

Spokane is becoming the new Silicon Valley they said. Better call it Silikane Valley then, I said.

securitychatter.com

I should do a podcast, no wait, I shouldn’t do a podcast.

islandprotocol.com

What if instead of clouds, we had islands? How would we connect them? Island Protocol is how! What is an island in this context? I do not know.

Btw, if anyone wants to buy these domains for a billion dollars (OBO) just let me know.
