Cork’d

Lovely new community site for wine aficionados from my friends Dan Benjamin and Dan Cederholm. Terrific design and a great idea — you rate and comment upon the wines that you drink, and you get recommendations based on the ratings from other users.

I’m particularly fond of their domain name: very short, very memorable. If Flickr operated like the patent trolls at Creative Labs, they’d have filed for a patent for “a technique to remove the ‘e’ from the suffix of a common word for use in creating a distinctive, memorable domain name for a web application.”
