A Long Road Forward

I’ve spent about a year working on Domain Pigeon and I’ve learned a lot in that time and I’m proud of what the site has become, but its time to start thinking about what’s next.

I’ve been tossing around a few ideas for what to work on and I think I’ve finally settled on a project. I’m very excited about it and I think it will be life changing for a lot of people.

I plan to use the following technologies to make it:

  • Python/Django
  • Flash/Actionscript
  • jQuery
  • Google Maps API

I could probably do it with Ruby on Rails and Prototype, but a lesson learned from a decade of Visual Basic work has taught me that it’s wise to learn something new for every project you undertake. In this case, I don’t have any experience with any of those things, so it’s going to take some time.

At some point in the next few months I’m also going to use the profits from Domain Pigeon to form an LLC to cover this project and any others I might start in the next few years.

I will continue to work on Domain Pigeon as time permits, but with only a few hours a day to work, this new project will be my priority. Domain Pigeon will continue to be updated daily with new domain and Twitter names and there are a few more major features I want to implement, but the days of small layout changes are at an end.

Lots to learn, lots to do.
