I was not foresighted enough, back in the early 2000s, to register the netnewswire.com domain — and so, of course, somebody else bought it with the hopes of selling it to me.
(These days the first thing you do is register the domain name. But that wasn’t as much a thing back then.)
I’ve been long resigned to never own that domain name. But then, just a few days before Christmas, I got an email from Ben Ubois, founder and developer of Feedbin, saying that he’d bought it for me. We transferred the domain pretty quickly after.
And then, this weekend, I got the new site set up — and now you can find NetNewsWire where it always should have been: netnewswire.com.
Thanks to Ben!
