Business Birthdays

Business Birthdays

“If you die, I’m going to kill you.”

I was recovering from a near-death experience, ensconced in a tiny trailer in a big trailer park in old South Austin. The price of a domain name was expensive, so I could only do one URL, and astrofish.net won the ring toss.

As close as I could get with a portmanteau of fishing guide to the stars working in wordplay with the whole “fish net” image.

    I used to swing my voluptuous hips when I said “fish net.”

Domain names, pre-Y2K needed to be catchy and demonstrative of the content housed. I would guess this is now less about housing data and more about warehousing data.

Business Birthdays

But the Business Birthdays are a quick celebration of the official name’s point of inception. What it is, what it’s become, and where it might go. I’m oddly invested in the name. A little quirky, at best, and the idea is a super-simple design, one I’ve never been quite able to achieve. I can see it, but then, I get to adding buttons, bells, and whistles — oftentimes, unnecessary.

“It amuses me.”

Doubt that works.

24 years at one digital address with regular, weekly material. Not always good material, but always on some kind of a weekly schedule.

The Various URL

In the words of individuals born after the URL?

“It is what it is.”
