Something will happen. It will be set in motion by the launch of all the new sTLDs / Specialty . . no, no, no . . Sinister Top Level Domains.

Someone somewhere will hit "Enter" and then it will happen.

DOMAIN APOCALYPSE!

The Mayan Calendar Apocalypse was just a dry run, a warm up, a "This is only a test, if this was a REAL APOCALYPSE . . . " situation.

Start stockpiling and getting ready for the day. I'm not sure, though, what to stockpile or how to get ready. (What would you stockpile for the Domain Apocalypse? How will YOU prepare for IT?)

Because it's coming and just to be sure I checked and can confirm that the related domain has been registered by a visionary (not me :-/) . . a profit (:-/) . . who has seen it coming . .

Idle thought: It's the domain-naming equivalent of what happened to phone numbers a while back. (Speaking of the US and, I think, Canada.) For years and years it was perfectly straightforward: three digits with 0 or 1 in the middle was an area code. Anything else was a local prefix. Now it's just a big mess and you don't know who or where you're calling.

I have slowly been divesting and am down to about 120 names of which about 20 are the hypenated version.

Of all the ones I have not yet developed, all keyword names, they will all have WordPress sites on them this year, I'll see how they go for a few months and then decide what to do with them.

After 18 years of doing this, coming up to 19 years, I'm getting fed-up of being jived around by Google and whilst we shall keep our brochure sites we'll be going back to participating in real world widget trade exhibitions.

No matter how cool or clever the domain name, if I don't have time/energy/interest/expertise to develop it, I'm better off to sell it or drop it, and free up the brainshare for the things I DO want to focus on.
