Are the days of speculative domain buying and hoarding over? On the one hand we've got places that still expect to get $40,000 for lame domain names like NY1.info and then there's splorp.com's domain name of the week, which provides some pretty cool names for the taking.

How many domain names do you own? I only own two, not counting suffix variations and my wife's business domain, but I know some people who have lots more. My office mate routinely registers domain names (just the other day we were talking about how rollajoin.com would be a funny name for a database tutorial site and he registered it that night), and I have another friend who owns laid-off.com and wants to give it away. So are domain names still gold or have they been reduced to trinkets?

Last of the dot-com playboys?

Last of the dot-com playboys? Henry Blodget, who talked up the tech boom and failed to predict the bust, has taken up Merrill Lynch's general redundancy offer and walked away with a cool $2 million. (This after ML settled with a client who had his portfolio wiped out by following Blodget's recommendations.) Somehow, though, I suspect that many casualties of the shrinking Nasdaq who followed his recommendations might wish a different "lifestyle decision" for him... (NYT, blah etc blah)

"FuckedCompany.com is a game based on the classic deadpool, but instead of betting for (or against) people, you're betting on companies. FuckedCompany.com has also pretty much turned into the source for news about dot-com companies. Bad news, that is. "
