Failed Ideas and Projects.

Seth Godin asks: If you had 10 or 100 or 1000 domains each leading to a single idea, would your web presence feel the same? Would it be better?

This inspired me to create a list of URL's I have owned at one time with the idea of building them out into projects, companies, etc. Here's the list (in no particular order):

So, to answer Seth's question. I'd have to say yes. Looking over my list, several of those ideas could have become great things. And it's quite humbling to look over it now that it's been a few years. Why did I abandon so many of them? The simple answer is time. There's just never enough of it, especially when working fulltime. I think there were other things at play. It just wasn't as easy to build things on the web back then. There were no frameworks, no rubyonrails, dojo, etc. Most people were making their own frameworks or had tons of spaghetti PHP code. It's a heck of a lot easier now. Lastly, I just can't sit in front of a computer screen endlessly all day and night. Real life is more fun and rewarding.

The ideas still come. I have 2 or 3 good ones that still lack the time. Maybe, just maybe, they'll see the light of day.
