The good domain names are going fast

Here come the hyphenated names. DavesBeer.com just turned two and I don't have intentions of giving it up anytime soon. Especially with the tv commercial and all, I'm practically famous. Might even have to get a bodyguard. Mike Tyson busy?

Anyway, I've noticed a lot of the good domain names are taken and there seems to be a wave of hyphenated ones. For instance, The-sky-is-falling.com is for a movie coming out in about 196 days; a Disney production of Chicken Little. On the other hand, the entrepreneurial site, theskyisfalling.com, is some site selling little nuggets of dogshit garbage and telling you it's a piece of a Mars meteorite.

One thing is good about this. It means the behemoth Disney is not capable of ripping the domain away from the little guy (no matter how dubious the site) with brute legal force. You can lock your domain now and, as far as I can tell, it's yours.

I'd think that Disney will get theskyisfalling.com domain soon.

They can't be making much money selling their dogshit from that domain. I'm Disney has already offered them some $$$ for it. They are just holding out for more.

Just my guess....

I wish I could figure out the next good domain to capture for ransom.
