Which name/domain do you like better?
(Please feel free to reply in words if easier and elaborate) :)
@aral I prefer nodekit.dev because TLDs have meanings and nodekit very likely has nothing to do with Italy.
@aral nodekit dot dev covers the intention a lot better, and would cause less confusion when trying to direct people to it by word of mouth.
@aral Personally, I'd not put the dot in the middle of a word, so in something like "read.it" I might have gone for the .it domain.
@ejg Yeah, I know. There’s not much I can do about the fact that what should be public infrastructure is instead privately owned. (Domain names are a perfect example of artificial scarcity.)
@aral I like playing with TLDs but I guess I find it more annoying than funny and harder to remember
@aral Domain names aren't important today. Even if people perfectly know your full domain name, they'll type it in google's search field anyways 🙄
@aral I know! My wife is infected too. I tried to convice her at least to type the most common pages she knows into the adress bar, not in google's search field. She - proudly - demonstrated, that it works the other way round too. And that was the moment i gave up on this, i never ever again tried to explain that to someone. They don't get it.
