RubyURL.com.. was it destiny?

Posted by Tue, 15 Mar 2005 04:16:58 GMT

After announcing RubyURL (almost 200 URLs in 12 hours!), I saw a thread on RubyTalk discussing TinyURL and saw a post from Friday..where someone suggested the idea of a site called, rubyurl.net!

Here’s the weird part. I subscribed to RubyTalk yesterday (Sunday morning) and never saw that thread, never saw that suggestion..and somehow, I came up with this idea to build RubyURL.com last night (as a let’s see if I can do it in a hour’ type of project).

However, now that I just saw the thread, I feel like I unknowingly took someones idea and ran with it..without ever knowing it. heh.

As I just said on RubyTalk, the world works in strange ways…
