My old domain is worth $693

About four years ago, my old domain (the .net version of Critical Thoughts domain) was forcibly taken away from me when I wanted to renew it after the domain expired. The reason I could not do so earlier was because the domain was “locked” and therefore I was unable to transfer the domain to another registrar. So I decided to wait until it expires by itself but some criminal decided that the domain was worth something and decided to “legitimately” steal it from me.

Today I did a search for the domain and out of serendipity, I came across this auction. Man, that is how much the .net is worth? I wonder how much the .org will be then?

    1. seriously…how does that happen? its a lots of money… may you can start new business, selling domains.

    2. Andrei Linde at Stanford has brought forward the cosmological model of a multiverse, which he calls the “self-reproducing inflationary universe.” The theory is based on Alan Guth’s inflation model, and it includes multiple universes woven together in some kind of spacetime foam. Each universe exists in a closed volume of space and time. Linde’s model, based on advanced principles of quantum physics, defies easy visualisation. Quite simplified, it suggests quantum fluctuations in the universe’s inflationary expansion period to have a wavelike character. Linde theorises that these waves can “freeze” atop one another, thus magnifying their effect.

      The stacked-up quantum waves can in turn create such intense disruptions in scalar fields -the underlying fields that determine the behaviour of elementary particles- that they exceed a critical mass and start procreating new inflationary domains. The multiverse, Linde contends, is like a growing fractal, sprouting inflationary domains, with each domain spreading and cooling into a new universe.

      If Linde is correct, our universe is just one of the sprouts. The theory neatly straddles two ancient ideas about the universe: that it had a definite beginning, and that it had existed forever. In Linde’s view, each particular part of the multiverse, including our part, began from a singularity somewhere in the past, but that singularity was just one of an endless series that was spawned before it and will continue after it.

    4. It was an idea I just had. A good or bad one I don’t know but the thing is, I’ve been learning Chinese for about four months now (I’m 15) and I find it so hard to stay motivated and focused. I think teenagers especially, can be very judgmental about anyone who does something that different from the “normal” or “expected” of your average teenager. I know I’ve certainly had some harsh/ignorant/odd comments simply because I’m learning Chinese and I have no personal history about it (in other words my family isn’t Chinese and the closet connection I have are some friends at school who are from China. I think perhaps this judgmental and prejudiced attitude puts off some western teenagers from learning an Asian language like Chinese or Japanese.

      So I was wondering, do you think a website specifiically (but not soluly) aimed at teenagers could combat this or just give inspiration to those learning already? I think if the awareness of learning Chinese or Japanese was spread then teenagers wouldn’t think it was a “weird” thing to do. (I know my friends do). Even if people don’t share this opinion, I think many people just don’t see Chinese as an easy accessible language like Spanish or French and are missing out. I just thought if we built a community of young Chinese learners then this would help spread the awareness of the language, inspire new people to learn and help motivate those already learning. What do you think?

      It think, as someone said to me before, I would make sure that we wouldn’t “sugar coat” China to make it sound better like the Chinese government sometimes do as propaganda, but we’d have to tell it like it is and be honest (but not deliberately critical).

      I’m not saying that everyone should be speaking some Chinese but merely suggesting that it should have wider audience, especially the girls at school since we mix with Chinese speaking girls who are borders and celebrate Chinese new year with them amongst many other of their traditions.

      I know learning Chinese wouldn’t interest/be suitable for some people but I think if it was made more accessible and less daunting (ie: you weren’t constantly stuck on your own in your bedroom learning like I am) then people could make a more educated choice.

      So how do you think I should go about doing this? To be honest, I’m not too sure where to start with regards to getting a website made and actually coming up with a name/brand. Obviously, no one’s going to take me seriously if I set up a Piczo or MySpace website dedicated to Chinese lol But I can’t exactly afford to buy my own domain, at least not until I know this things going to be a success. What do you suggest? I want to be taking seriously! I’ve done numerous business selling/ideas over the internet (yes, I know I’m only 15) but it is hard to get taken seriously!

      Is this a plausible idea? Do you think people would go for it if presented in the right way? What’s are you thoughts on this?
