Web 2.0 Site Name

I have a name for a site for a Web 2.0 style service. I have no idea what it would do, but do you need to know? It is:

Finl Vowl Droppr

Update: The joke didn’t stay a joke very long, as Dan Tripp registered the domain name. Pete Prodoehl pointed it out to me, perhaps he was thinking about registering it too.

  1. Ken, you’ll need a barn burner. I think my wife is going to win. I put in several entries but I think hers is better than any of mine.

  2. Dave:

    If no one from EGC or its extended family wins this thing, someone should host an “also-rans” comment thread, where EGCers can submit their entries, for admiration by all.

    And if someone from the group wins, good on ’em.


  3. OK, how does one handle a word like “a” or “i”, which consist of a single vowel? Do we need a placeholder?

    Is it “Tody s nw dy”? or “Tody s _ nw dy”?

    For purposes of this exercise, is the letter “y” always, never, or sometines considered a vowel?

    W gott gt ths rght 🙂


  4. OK, here goes:
    Now, the graphichs people can design the pastel-colored, round-buttoned site, and the web developers can incorporate a front end for this, and we’re ready for the Season of Perpetual Betaness:
