Geek bit

I've never really thought about the limits to domain names -- which are available, which have been squatted but could be had for a price, when they might run out -- other than in the obvious commercial or humorous ways that they occasionally arise. But boing boing offers a glimpse of what's already taken, including all 1, 2, or 3-letter combinations, most if not all common (in the US) first and last names, etc. Pretty intriguing! There's a lot more at the full article, for those curious about more esoteric combinations or strategies...
