I’ve known for a while now that my Hursley-based friends had coined the name “Pipr” for me, presumably describing my manic enthusiasm for social networking. Chris Dalby mentioned it in a blog post yesterday, and it prompted me to check whether the pipr.com domain was available.
Sadly, the .com is already being squatted on, and none of the other “obvious” top level domains were available either. But hey, we live in a world of liberalised TLD allocation anyway. I did notice that pipr.me.uk was available and highly affordable, so I picked that one up instead.
Thanks to the magic of WordPress.com Domain mapping, right now it just redirects to the blog. I’ve also created a free Google Apps account so I can get email too.
So I just need a logo, and to work out what Pipr is really going to mean, and I’m all set. Ideas? logo designs? Comment below, or send them here 🙂
Update: I generated a silly logo for myself… using the magic of the Web 2.0 Logo Creator, tipped off by Benjamin in the comments below. I’m sure there are better ones that people could come up with.
