Welcome to the home of Donavon West. An independent consultant and Microsoft MVP. I'll be discussung things that are near and dear to me, including life, love, technology and politics. Are you looking for Donavon Stinson? Or possibly even Donavon Frankenreiter? (man, that dude is everywhere!)

givenname My first name is Donavon and I own the domain donavon.com (sorry Donavon Frankenreiter). It wasn't hard to get, as I registered it way back in the day when the Internet was crawling out of the primordial ooze. Plus let's face it, there aren't too many Donavons out there.

Coincidently, I know two other people who have their first (or given name) as their domain.

molly.com - Molly E. Holzschlag is a well-known Web standards advocate, instructor, and author.

dori.com - Dori Smith is a long-time blogger and author of books on JavaScript, Dreamweaver, Mac OS X, and Java.

Hey, guess what? Dick.com is not owned by someone with that first name. smile_regular

Facebook Group

Are there any other (givenname).com's out there? As elite members of society (not unlike a first chair violinist) we must band together. That's why I've formed a Facebook group called (givenname).com.

To join this "invitation only" group, send me an email from your givenname domain. My email address is givenname@givenname.com where givenname = donavon (of course).

Oh, there are a number of us out there. Two more I can think of off the top of my head: lynda.com and tantek.com.
