Not the Dot-Com Guy, he's a guy.com An Israeli fellow has legally changed his surname to .com; his website is just the usual personal website and doesn't seem to offer any deeper clues, so you figure it out.

Gee, I can't imagine this actually happening to him, can you?

Must fly. I'm off to go legally change my name to my phone number. 325-2331 Kurruk sounds just bad-ass.

Funny, Com does not seem a Jewish name to me. I would have changed to .Org

Nothing's stopping you, maura. I think we tend to forget that surnames aren't domain names. You can certainly change your last name to ".com". You'd have to fight over the domain, though.

This guy's resume pert' near made me cross-eyed. And I like to think that I have "extensive general knowledge" myself.
