AOL’s Free Email Addresses

Why are AOL’s panic attempts at get more users by offering free email on any available domain being discussed here? Because Techdirt is suggesting that this is a form of crowdsourcing i.e. let the crowd decide what the best domain names are and then register them for the benefit of AOL’s use.

This isn’t a good example of crowdsourcing. It’s not even a good idea!
