The Colour of Money by penguincakes
So, many years ago, when I wanted a domain name of my own I thought long and hard of what the name might be, what the name should signify, what it would mean and it tickled me immensely when I hit on a memorable phrase that was designed explicitly to be meaningless.
Someone had already registered it, of course, and I had to buy it for an amount I have never disclosed to Mrs Botogol, but then registered it, and made a site and it was my very own.
And if I tell you that it was some years before it occurred to me that "green ideas" had environmental connotations it will tell you both about how long ago this was, and also about how quickly our language changes for a meaning had risen to fit my meaningless name.
And now, in 2009, I find I could sell my name - for people are interested - and everything has a price, doesn't it? It would be feel like selling a little part of myself, so my price is a large one. Of course it is.
1 so why is there no name for it?
