I like the idea of a .menu, cause it’d be like a menu of links. mystery.menu or hidden.menu, maybe hidden.supplies?
mystery.menu is $75 so fuck that. hidden.menu is still an option, mysterious.menu marvelous.menu…
Mystery.miami? As Kottke has said: it’s too bad beyonce.horse is taken.
There’s a style of site I really dig and I find things often and send them to pinboard, but I don’t really use pinboard in actuality because it has more than just those cool sites.
Yeah, this was a big reason I started href.cool. Pinboard is so awesome. But whenever I start to follow a user, they inevitably start archiving their tweets—go to /popular/ and note that ‘twitter’ and ‘ifttt’ are tags full of noise.
Far be it from me to tell people not to use Pinboard to archive. If you do use a Pinboard, just tag everything in your ‘directory’ with a unique tag. Like ‘mystery.menu’, for instance. Then, people can watch your directory using https://pinboard.in/u:kevinkovacs/t:mystery.menu.
I really appreciate your encouragement. If you would have told me one year ago that I would be building a little Yahoo!-style directory, I would have laughed extremely hard and checked the date to see how far into the month we actually were. Yahoo!'s directory was adorable and doomed—but here we are. I think it’s pretty cool for personal use and I’m surprised that you see it too!
I would love to see more directories spring up—and I would look through yours from top to bottom. I wouldn’t have the restraint to stop myself—it feels like an untapped medium.
