I want to congratulate the Rob and the Soylent team on successfully maneuvering through the murky world of “.com” extension domain registrations to acquire Soylent.com!
It’s a small thing that I feel is actually a big thing.
Everything in the dictionary and in pop culture is seemingly reserved with a “.com” on the end of it and is either being actively used or being passively sat-on.
I looked up “.me” on Wikipedia, and it’s a country domain for Montenegro (?), which I suppose was considered useful as a .com alternative for certain situations, similar to the Tuvalu Islands getting .tv and marketing that useful extension to the television industry.
But .com is the original and dominant domain extension, and it feels great to log onto Soylent.com instead of the domain for the historic country of Montenegro, though it is apparently a really beautiful country and worth visiting some day. “Montenegro: meaning “Black Mountain”, is a country in Southeastern Europe. It has a coast on the Adriatic Sea to the south-west and is bordered by Croatia to the west, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the northwest, Serbia to the northeast, and Albania to the south-east. Its capital and largest city is Podgorica…”
