Domain history: Twenty years after registering my first domain name

acro.net acro.net: Twenty years have passed since I registered my first domain name, on February 12, 1997. At the time, I was already involved with the Internet access provider industry for several years, so to some it’d seem surprising that it took me a while to get my own domain.

New Plugin: Micro.blog, the Decentralized Twitter

I Want My Name I Want My Name: Here’s the elevator pitch: Who owns email? No one, and that’s by design. It’s what we call a decentralized network. Now who owns Twitter? Twitter does, and they make their money by serving you ads based on the things you write and the people you follow. It’s creepy. Micro.blog takes what Twitter does, but makes it decentralized. No creepy data collection, no targeted ads. All your “tweets’ are yours, and you can do whatever you want with them.
At iwantmyname, we’re big proponents of the indie web, and we’d love to see the walled gardens of Twitter and Facebook come down. Micro.blog is a nice place for that to start. It’s social like Twitter with a central view of all the people you follow, but the content can be hosted and read anywhere (it’s basically an RSS feed for tweets).
Anyways, enough of the sales pitch (head to micro.blog to read more) – since we backed micro.blog’s Kickstarter campaign, we’re part of the early round of invited users. And because they allow custom domains, we went ahead and added Micro.blog as a plugin in our Marketplace. If you’ve been invited to use the service, do yourself a favor and give your micro blog a custom domain (take that, Twitter!). And if you haven’t been invited yet, get on that waiting list! (Hopefully it’ll be opening up soon.)
