Like every web nerd, I’ve got a bunch of domain names (even though I’ve worked hard to reduce their number). I thought it would be fun to enumerate them.
ben.lol: I bought this domain for use with temporary, fun projects. Right now it hosts a work-in-progress text adventure based on my dreams, written in Inform 7. Almost every dream I have is based in a consistent universe with interconnected locations - so I made them into an interactive world. I add to this from time to time.
fatberg.org: Registered and built on a whim during a W3C meeting, this is the enterprise software stack of your dreams.
5405spainave.com: A work-in-progress site for the house we’re selling. Once we’ve got professional photographs and the house is on the market, I’ll bring the site to life and do a lot more linking to it.
On the bench
werd.tips: I think I bought this to host reviews.
werd.press: I think mostly I couldn’t resist the pun?
werdmuller.org: For future family use.
squirming.net: I’ve owned this domain name for nearly 25 years. It made more sense when I was 19. But there’s no way I’m letting go of it now.
humanist.tech: For a future blog that I never had the time to put together. But wouldn’t it be nice to have a space that talks about humanist tech projects?
bookhackers.com: Years ago I helped run an event about the future of publishing. I bought this to coincide with that. Maybe I should do something with it?
