Dongiverse: A Universe of Dongs

Table of Contents


Yeah, I'm that guy. I created a site as a joke, and some day I'm going to make it an actual thing. I have a half-baked prototype, basically a bunch of slightly-themed CRUD pages built on an old-ish version of Ruby on Rails. I keep wanting to use it as an excuse to learn a new programming language but currently have not had the energy to do it.

I want this to be more than just a static site, or a place to upload obscene things; I want to build a 3D printing community. Bad Dragon is up to some cool shit with their Bad Dragon Labs, and building a community similar to that would be the end-goal of Dongiverse, with the company doing high-quality production of the objects which the community is most interested in, and the artist would get most of the profit from it.

Some day. Some day.

There was a few months there where dongiverse got a bunch of media coverage. It was weird, but pretty cool. I'm even quoted in an adult entertainment industry magazine somewhere.
