7 years ago at this writing, I sold the redmonk.net domain to RedMonk, after a friendly 7-year conversation with RedMonk’s El Hefe, James Governor. His blog post on the occasion:

7 Years To Secure A Domain Name: a tale of web identity

But he also mentioned he would consider a reasonable offer… whoa. This was a big big change. Consider a reasonable offer? Not just a flat out no? And it only took me seven years to weaken his resolve…

Wow, I’ve “known” James for 14 years? I’m a fossil.
