MapPointPartners.com was originally registered by a company who was doing some consulting/contract work and/or web development stuff for Microsoft back in the days when MapPoint 2002 was just getting going and Microsoft poured lots of dollars into the product.
There was even an in-flight TV advertisement for MapPoint, believe it or not. And MapPoint was featured in many Microsoft-general presentations around the globe such as at Microsoft “Big Days”.
So anyway, back to MapPointPartners.com — I had placed many links to the site, so I noticed and was a little surprised when it was about to expire. So I placed a backorder on it and snapped it up, why not. I knew it was valuable, and the domain-snatcher companies that just grab any domain that comes up for sale would just turn it into crap.
Not that I did anything with it for several years, I think I just had it redirecting to http://www.mp2kmag.com/mappoint/companies/. But it’s better than nonsense stuff that the domain grabber outfits would have done with it.
Anyway, eventually I want to highlight and promote all of the companies that are doing stuff with MapPoint, whether Microsoft Certified Partners or not, and whether or not you are selling products or services for MapPoint.
