Back in 1994, I registered Chattanooga.com - Dan thought it was too long, that we show be cha.us or some such.. All being told, it was one of the few smart things we really ever did. Slightly later we registered Chattanooga.net/.org and even .gov (which I donated to the city later). It's not been "mine" for over a year and I haven't gotten an answer what happened, but it appears it got 'unrenewed' and picked up by the people that now run Chattanooga.com, from Hilton Head SC.

Goodbye old friend..

Ain't that the way of 'nooga? Rather than building new technology with local talent everyone sticks to their known comfort zone and outsources the stuff that could lead to innovation.

hmmm, something like that happened to my old edgecase site (they'd call it a "blog" nowadays, but to me it was "a sort of slashdot discussion thing"), only instead of being actually used for anything cool the new owners are just parking one of those fake search engine things there.

Dan, I've got access to some deep pockets, and I still can't find anything worth doing locally that would be innovative (and make money). Instead.. I'm doing e-commerce/business website hosting.. keeping Beau, Ernie and myself employed. Keeping our heads above water is winning the war right now. Next month, we'll roll out some "products" worth marketing, but nothing innovative except that it works.
