The Tripod site's Toybox is a delightful way to while away your time. One of its diversions is a generator for new cyber-businesses: the site will invent a company name for you, offer a logo, and write a suitably buzzword-laden business plan.
The names of the suggested cyber-businesses are generated in a "choose one from column A and one from column B" fashion. As best I can figure, Column A and Column B each contain 13 name fragments. Below are the graphics out of which you construct logos for the resulting 169 potential new businesses. The Bizplan site went online some time ago (there isn't even a link to it from the Toybox page now, though there was yesterday). At this writing 103 of the corresponding domain names are already in use. Wonder how many of them used the Tripod Business Plan site to get started? The 66 available names are shown at the bottom of this page.
