Forget .Me, How About .Ego?

Entrepreneur kicks around idea for .ego top level domain name.
Got a big ego? You might be able to pick up YourName.ego once new top level domain names are released.
A Florida man has filed a trademark application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for “.ego” for “Extension of domain names for identification of personal users on a global computer network”.
I contacted David Ways today to see what his plans are for the domain name.
“.Ego encompasses everything about an individual,” explained Ways. “Your ego is your personal identity.”
One possibility is that your .ego site could be a central hub for your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts, he explained. He thinks it’s a better TLD for this than .name, for example, since ego encompasses your entire identity.
Ways is in the early stages of planning the top level domain name and is looking for partners.
