Widening the Web

WIDENING THE WEB….You’ll soon be able to buy your own custom internet domain name, but sadly, the price tag will be high. I was thinking maybe I could snag .drum, or failing that, .kevin or .kevindrum or .kevindaledrum or something. But with the application fee expected to be around a hundred grand or so — and that’s assuming you don’t get into a bidding war with some other glory hound — I guess I’ll pass for now. Still, watching everyone else fight over this ought to be fun. Here’s hoping they don’t bring down all the tubes doing it.
