TOAST, APPLE, JAVA
« on: August 06, 2014, 04:50:02 AM »

APPLE

JAVA

TOAST

Part of a complete breakfast....

APPLE changed the face of computing
JAVA changed the face of the internet
TOAST will (holy cow, the implications!)

Could we really be onto something?

Raise your hand if you are serious about liking the idea of Toast naming his DAC TOAST [hand raised]

Can we vote "yes" just because we're rabble rousers ?

I did chuckle at UCANN instead of ICANN.

Bitshares Toast - The neatest thing since sliced bread!

Toast Level Domains (TLD) secured via Blockchain Naming Service (BNS)

.p2p
.toast
.jam
.jelly
.pbj

...and they can be purchased with mere "crumbs"?

APPLE, JAVA, TOAST!
APPLE, JAVA, TOAST!
ICANN see the  most
believe in those.

UCANN beat those
that don't believe,
belive the most
in  APPLE, JAVA, TOAST!






* To be honest - not the biggest fan of java and especially apple, but sure as hell will be proud if toast manages to achieve the success of either of those.

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

I voted yes, but think we should mainly focus on the .p2p TLD so that it  the .p2p extension gains a value of its own like a .com extension

I agree, Get the Infrastructure in place for 'folks to start creating web page content

And who knows what people will call it once 'folks start to get Onboard the "New Internet"

Wikipedia lists 250 foods that are named after real life people:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_foods_named_after_people

Once we explain to the World that this is a "new internet", That "New Internet" Must have a NAME

"TOAST" or whatever

Are we witnessing the birthing of One such meme ?

EDIT: LOL

Are you saying Memes by nature are not long-term sustainable?

I would agree with that observation

In order to be taken seriously by those outside the community, I sure wouldn't bet on a meme to represents the namespace DAC...

'Namespaces' is more like FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter & Reddit...
(There is a bit of a link in brand name to function) so I think it's quite good.

Many other brand names Yahoo, Java, google, Apple, yahoo, Amazon etc. are not function related.

The fact that 'Toast' is being argued over at all, shows that it has legs and it also seems to be gaining traction in the naming thread https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=6637.0

At the same time the main dev isn't a fan, and if the main dev doesn't like it as the name of the product he's going to busting 15 hour days on, it's a non starter imo unless it grows on him.

In another example: Java, Server Beans, Coffeescript (though technically javascript), etc.


Not that far off Toast and Crumbs.
