Why I registered 308745538.com

Just before noon eastern time today, the US Census Bureau announced the results of the 2010 US census.

Among various numbers that were released, the figure “308,745,538” represents the official resident population of the United States for the next ten years.

I’m excited to announce that I was able to register that exact number as a .com – thus securing the single most important number representing USA until 2020.

Why is this number important?

Because regardless of political affiliations, financial status, gender, race, creed, religion or sexual orientation, the ability to declare oneself a formally counted resident of the United States of America is the ultimate honor – being an American out of a country that is 308,745,538 strong.

Currently, 308745538.com is parked at Sedo; in the coming weeks there will be another announcement about the particular use planned for the domain.

For updates, follow me on Twitter.
