Acquisition of StartupLawyer.com

Last Friday, I was talking with @rylanbarnes and @jakemarsh, about how I have wanted to obtain craved the startuplawyer.com domain since 2006. I attempted to acquire the domain before launching this blog, but ended up going with thestartuplawyer.com

Well, I acquired startuplawyer.com late last night. It points to this site for now, but this site will likely be moving over to that domain after some minor re-branding. Good thing I had a previously scheduled lunch today with my web designer guru.

  5. @ Jake Marsh – Yeah, I would like ryanroberts.com as well. The guy who owns it runs his fashion line with it. Thought about buying some clothes and having my name on the tag — it would be just like my mother put my name on tags with a sharpie.

    @ Jake Good – Thanks! Thankfully I don't crave any 5-letter domains.

    @ Jake M. and Jake G. — So who gets Jake.com?

    Hey that's a great idea. To all potential buyers:

    (1) I don't do earnouts, and

    (2) I'm not moving.

  15. Ryan, use all of us your clients as angel investors. We'll all take 1% each and you get 10%. 3 years vesting, of course 🙂

    Then you start selling instant law tweets, I bet this business model was never tried before.

    Now, ho do I spell P*O*R*S*C*H*E…
