Ego08 January 2016
I have a new redirect from my vanity domain. The general structure, as of today, is:
- (www.)bt3.com - a Mediawiki site, ‘self-hosted’ on a server provided by @rabryst (App.net.) Currently stagnant, I’m unable to take it down without a tortuous examination of the action’s impact on the rest of the Web,*
- blog.bt3.com - a subdomain redirecting to bazbt3.re-app.net, my blog hosted at 10centuries.com by @matigo (App.net),
- ego.bt3.com - the new subdomain redirecting to bazbt3.github.io, my test blog hosted by Github.com.
My first choice, ‘id’, would have misrepresented the blog a little; there’s nothing visceral allowed to intrude, though my aim is to introduce its reader to the writer.
I’d toyed with the idea of something ‘clever’ but difficult to verbally pass on, for example ‘httpcolonslashdot’, ‘http’, or simply ‘dot’; but the likelihood that my site will be disseminated by literal word-of-mouth is remote indeed.
So, because I have one, ‘ego’ it is.
Don’t bookmark it.
