Small World, Small Internet

A few months ago, I sold one of my domain names. I had an offer to sell it for a rather impressive sum, being that it was just for the domain name only and not a site purchase offer. I had bought the domain name to host my resume and portfolio a few years ago while I was looking for a job, and so it was just sitting dormant now since I am currently employed. So I decided to sell it, a tale I covered much more completely in the review for my XPS M1530. After it was transferred, I was curious as to what they were doing with it. The registrar on it was a shirt printing company, as far as I could tell, so I wasn't sure what it was going to be.

Finally, a site has been given to it. It is the home of a program I read about in the news a few weeks ago, a music and acting program for students in the East Coast. It's called the Fidelity FutureStage:

The most intriguing thing about this, though, is who is running it. Fidelity Investments, an investment firm, not someone you would immediately think of doing something like this. But not that in itself. The intriguing part is my father is an employee of Fidelity Investments, and has worked there for over 20 years now.

Not even six degrees, that's like two at most. The internet is a much smaller place then it seems.

On a side note from an observer's standpoint, the page developer was a little inconsistent on their coding. The title has it spelled "Futurestage", without the second word capitalized, but the meta information right after it and the rest of the page has the proper capitalization of the program.
