What's the significance of the domain

A domain was desired that would capture the essence of the web, at the time. One that would be just another site on the Internet, amidst the failing dotcoms. Wait one second. How about Alas, that particular domain: taken.

Countless whois queries later, the domain came to mind. Jonathan mulled and questioned those close — apologies Gemma — until it was realized he had finally found what he had looked for.

Sometimes others want to know the location of the author's site. When told, it usually takes a short while for the connotation to register. In their defense, most just aren't on the level of Mr. Horak's genius.

"What's that again?"
After a sigh, "another pointless dotcom."
"Okay, got it: another pointless dotcom."
Pause. "Oh! Jolly, good sir!"
"Do people actually still say that?"

(Breaking third person to speak directly to the people.)
I'm one of many putting personal content to the web. A match in a forest fire. The name "another pointless dotcom" is an attempt to show that I'm comfortable with this.
