About us

Qggl grew out of a goofy hack by Jay Carlson, who was then egged on mercilessly by Douglas Barnes, who loves to shop for domain names. They think pointing people at quirky or unexpected search results is hilarious.

Doug and Jay met on LambdaMOO in 1993 at the dawn of the commercial Internet, and Jay interned at IO.com that summer while sleeping on Doug’s couch. Twenty-three years later, they still crack each other up.
