Write an Elevator Pitch / Tagline


We are closing this domain naming thread. It is asking the entirely wrong question. See this blog post for details: Domain Names: Wrong Question

We're going to keep the name gis.stackexchange.com. But we WILL be setting up redirects from the more "popular" domains names (e.g. seasonedadvice.com to cooking.stackexchange.com, basicallymoney.com to money.stackexchange.com, and others as we go through the list).

New question: "Write and Elevator Pitch / Tagline!"

[original message text below]

Please suggest domain names, remember that Stack Overflow Inc. might put up some cash if needed, so squatted domains aren't really off the mark.

Place your suggestions each in an answer and please inform of the status (unregistered/squatted/in active use/abandoned)

Available (held).

Reasoning: the original Stack Overflow was named after the common technical problem, similarly invalid geometries are a specific issue commonly encountered by users of GIS.

    I love it...... – Dandy Jul 26 '10 at 14:01
  • I quite like this too, despite a general dislike for the "failure mode" names. – JasonBirch Jul 26 '10 at 17:30

    does it need to be squatted? – Dandy Jul 27 '10 at 2:15

    OK, I've registered the domain, and happy to pass it off to the proper authorities if we do settle on it. – scw Jul 27 '10 at 6:55
  • @scw: Thank you for reserving it. For future reference, I am happy to register any domains that show signs of momentum/usability. – Robert Cartaino Jul 28 '10 at 15:23

  • drat, should have held it myself. It's gone now. Whoever you are, I hope you put it to real use! :) – matt wilkie Aug 24 '10 at 7:13

    This is my take on a geo-unique domain name. I personally don't like the link to the "mother site", and the SO folks have made it clear that they'd like the StackExchange sites to create their own brands. blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/07/domain-names – JasonBirch Jul 24 '10 at 6:39
  • Im never gonna remember that! – SpoiledTechie.com Aug 3 '10 at 21:30
  • @SpoiledTechie well, I was going to go with geoid, but it was taken and oblate spheroid was a close-enough approximation :) (maybe this was too much of an in-joke?) – JasonBirch Aug 4 '10 at 2:33
  • I had a mental block for remembering Stack Overflow for the longest time. I had to google for it every time. – JasonBirch Aug 4 '10 at 8:27
  • Definitely my favourite :) – fmark Aug 20 '10 at 0:03

gis.info - personal site, in use, but redirects to http://gisinfo.tistory.com/ so perhaps could be persuaded to let it go? Anyone here read/write korean?


gismind.com - taken, personal, not actively used (refers to DynDNS)
gismind.org, .net, .info - available




gis-mind.* - all available


geometryintersection.com (available) spatialintersection.com (available)


http://geomancers.com/ (squatted)


gis-knowledge.* - all available
gisknowledge - only .org and .info available









It's squatted, but is a nice oblique geography reference. Hard to type / remember however.

    makes me think the site would focussed on remote sensing – matt wilkie Jul 23 '10 at 18:40
