As part of completing our bankruptcy filing, the trustee has moved to sell of all the domain names we had gathered over the years. We had a sit down with the trustee, and went through a very long list. Looking through the list, I am reminded of a lot of fun projects that we came up with but did not execute. Who knows what someone else might have done with that same url had we not claimed it.
The thought triggered a flasback to this great post from Derek Sivers: Ideas are a multiplier of execution.
To me, ideas are worth nothing unless executed. They are just a multiplier. Execution is worth millions.
We’ll find out how much other people value the ideas behind these urls, or if they see a chance to put their own idea behind one, since the trustee is putting them up for auction online. He must have pulled a few others together as well, since I cannot recall registering any urls for kid’s clothing 🙂
