Mac Nagaswami is the founder of Carvertise, Carvertise is an advertising company that pays everyday drivers to place removable advertisements on their cars. Mac did a Ted talk in Wilmington back in December of 2015, the talk is about buying the domain name Carvertise.
It is a cool story if you do what we do or you are a startup founder. In an age of new gtlds and more choice, .com domain investors will be thrilled that a college kid was only going to go with the .com. He had changed the name of his company from Penguin Ads, to Carvertise, he registered others extensions but noted to the audience that he would not make the change unless he could get the “Golden Domain.”
Mac talked about how .com was the seal of credibility and he had to have it. The problem was that someone else owned Carvertise.com and they were not replying to emails.
