The evolution of my main professional/portfolio websites began with
the "Phonehenge Productions" website Phonehenge.com. Phonehenge is a
portmanteau (combination of words) of phone (modern technology)
and Stonehenge (ancient technology). I operated under this name until
I sold Phonehenge.com to Unforgettabrand in the UK.
I then created my "RestOf Media Network" by building the websites
RestOf.com, RestOfLinks.com, ItVaries.com and Drumpendium.com.
ItVaries.com was my artistic/creative portfolio site. I've used
many different names for possible music projects over the years.
"It Varies" was the name of my planned/possible/eventual music solo
project at that time. (Q: "What's the name of your band?" -
A: "It Varies."). This site featured my words, pictures (computer
and photographic) and sounds.
Drumpendium.com presented some of my ideas on drumming and rhythm.
"Drumpendium" is a portmanteau of drum and compendium. It was
originally the name of one of my drum demos.
RestOfLinks.com collected 2500 external resources links into a
RestOf.com (The site with the "rest of" my content) had the
programming portfolio and anything that was not on ItVaries.com,
Drumpendium.com or RestOfLinks.com.
Later I consolidated all of that material into a single larger
site at DaveURL.com. That site was retired when I started "Moving
Rocks Media". I launched a blog/website on MovingRocks.com using
WordPress as a CMS for blogging and content management.
I operated in "RestOf Media" mode from about 1997-2008 but sometimes
worked under other names including "Phonehenge Productions",
"DaveURL", "DrumThink, Inc." and directly as Dave Smithey.
