So wait, was I actually right about The Daily? Is it really not getting a homepage? The articles exist, but they’re not collected in any single place, it seems. (The robots.txt isn’t blocking searching engines yet though. You can see stories on Google.)
Since I never executed on this idea, I’ll give it to someone else: Go buy a similar domain, like TheDailyLinks.com or whatever, and then create a page that links to all of The Daily stories. Put ads around it, make money, piss people off, get David Carr to write about it.
