In Japan, URLs Are Totally Out

Cabel Sasser just got back from Japan and noticed that they do things a bit different over there.

Within minutes of riding on the first trains in Japan, I notice a significant change in advertising, from train to television. The trend? No more printed URL’s. The replacement? Search boxes! With recommended search terms!

I wonder when/if we’ll begin to see something similar here? Oh, and:

It makes sense, right? All the good domain names are gone.

It’s true. Most of the good domain names are already taken so it seems logical.


Please, Don't Be Shy
