At the OpenUpstate meeting I attended recently, as well as during my recent engagement to my girlfriend, I became painfully aware of the fact that the business cards I have do not contain any of my personal information on them. As a result of this, I decided to make some personal business cards for myself. In doing so, I decided to finally bite the bullet and purchase a vanity domain so that I’d have a respectable email address for people to contact me at. I am a programmer after all, I should be as elitist as possible, right?
bencarson.com is being cyber-squatted, so I bought bencarson.net. There’s nothing there yet since I mainly did this for the email address. However, I may be moving some content there in the future. I’ve never really fallen in love with jinjerbeard. Using a domain after my own dorky name may just be easier and certainly more permanent.
