Bring Out Your Dead (domain)

Jeremy Parsons

Jeremy Parsons

Jeremy Parsons (@jdap) presents us with a chance to end the grieving process for our dead domains. Bring one, two or two hundred domains that you have sitting around gathering dust and would like to lay to rest. We'll form teams, brainstorm wild and wonderful ideas about what to do, and work one or more of those ideas up into pitches, plans, prototypes or pages. 

The winners will walk away with the domain they chose, donated by the original owner. And all of us will know the world is a slightly better place.
