"Need a good domain name, must be cheap, can't be lame."

Silcon Valley’s dishy tech gossip rag, Valleywag, turned us on to this hysterical Web 2.0 satire video, “Here Comes Another Bubble,” by the Richter Scales, sung to the tune of Bill Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire.” I promise you will laugh out loud and watch it more than once.

How to avoid an invented name trainwreck.

Names should make people smile instead of scratch their head. Especially invented names, which are often mangled gobbldygook. Start-ups and old-school naming firms fall in love with invented names for three reasons: 1) They sail through trademarking; 2) the domain names are always available; 3) they want the ego boost of coining a word.
