  • As I was listening to this podcast I was reminded of one major disaster in my career:

    When I released my first album, I hadn’t registered the domain name I wanted yet. After the album was printed, we checked the availability of the domain name, and it was taken. We got in touch with the person who had parked the domain, but he wasn’t willing to sell it for less than 5 grand despite the fact that I wasn’t even in the same industry. Ultimately, my album was released with the wrong web address on it. There’s only one character difference between the URL I wanted and the URL I got, but lesson learned. Always check in advance.
