    in Technology

    The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) says it will drastically expand the number of domain name suffixes from the current 22 with the addition of generic top-level domains (gTLDs). While this sounds like a great oppportunity for midmarket companies, caution is advised before spending big bucks on a vanity domain.

    Episode 16 - #OpRecall4Mike and Name.Space

    in Current Events

    On August 9th, 2014, 18-year-old, Michael Brown was shot to death by Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson. To date, Darren Wilson has not been arrested and charged.  To date, the citizens of Ferguson have no protection.  Many are wondering how to move forward.  This is ONE option.  According to Missouri statutes §77.650 and 78.260, Ferguson residents have grounds to force a recall election of city officials, whom in turn can affect the police force. 



    NAME.SPACE endeavored to bring its TLDs to market by means of an antitrust case against Network Solutions 1997-2000, and after the formation of ICANN in 1998 through application in 2000 where it was considered in the top 10 "strong candidates" (of 44 applicants) but delegation was deferred in favor of industry incumbents. Garrin's project exists today as a social enterprise corporation and continues to seek recognition of its domains.

    Hard Starboard Radio: Why The Left Always Wins

    in Politics Conservative

    Another ObamaCare deadline bites the dust; Bruce Braley is a dick; Liberals don't have to live up to their own rules, because (1) they don't have any, and (2) even if they did, they wouldn't care how much they had to violate them to get what they want; A majority of Justices seem skeptical of the ObamaCare contraception mandate - with an emphasis on "seem"; Obama Motors is the crookedest corporation of all; and "Yes!...We!...ICANN!"?  No, we can't.

    PODCAST: Leigh Williams of BITS Discusses ICANN and Top Level Domain Expansion for the Financial Se

    in Legal

    On November 12th, ICANN published the Proposed Final New gTLD Applicant Guidebook that describes the process of applying for new generic top-level domains, which opens the door to the availability of financial generic top-level domains (think .bank or .insure).

    BITS, a division of the Financial Services Roundtable, has opposed this move to make gTLDs available to the financial services industry due to concerns about security and the application process.

    Today, we are speaking with Leigh Williams, Group President of BITS about this development and what BITS is doing to support the financial services industry.

    Second Coming Watch Sunday Roundup #9

    in News

    This is the Second Coming Watch Sunday Roundup for March 16, 2014. On the Roundup we feature the top 10 prophecy-related news stories that happened this past week which point towards the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and the end of the world as we know it. 

    1. Russia’s military staged a provocative new act of aggression Saturday, occupying a natural gas distribution center and village on a strip of Ukrainian land near the Crimean Peninsula and prompting Kiev’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to denounce “a military invasion by Russia.” 

    2. Iran’s foreign minister says his country doesn’t expect to cement a final deal in the coming round of nuclear talks with world powers. Mohammad Zarif spoke to reporters on Sunday saying, “We don’t expect to reach a deal in this round of talks... We have agreed to discuss a number of issues in this round." Zarif said Tehran and world powers will discuss “dimensions” of Iran’s nuclear activities like uranium enrichment, a heavy water reactor as well as sanctions in the Tuesday and Wednesday talks in Vienna. 

    3. Lebanon’s new government agreed to a compromise policy statement on Friday that fell short of explicitly enshrining the militant group Hezbollah’s role in confronting Israel but which would give all citizens the right to resist Israeli occupation or attacks. The deal was reached a few hours after Israel’s army said it fired tank rounds and artillery into southern Lebanon in retaliation for a bomb that targeted its soldiers patrolling the border.
