Last week was a big one for domain news. From AdWeek to The Guardian it seemed like everyone had an opinion on the .Sucks domain and its possible effect on brands and businesses. We were thinking about it too -- will the domain stay true to its mission to become a place where customers can vent? Time will tell.
We discuss the .AMAZON New gTLD application and the role of the Government Advisory Council in making decisions about geographic TLDs, the recent decision concerning the Legal Rights Objection for .MUSIC, .MAIL, and more.
For the sake of full disclosure I am a fan of the company Patagonia and I own at least two Patagonia jackets and a Patagonia wetsuit. I read the book by Patagonia founder Mr. Yvon Chouinard "Let My People Go Surfing" and thought it was tremendously inspiring and a must read for anyone that wants to see how private enterprise can "do good" and still make a buck.
