The big news of the week is the recognition that Team America will take its hands of the Internet's core, just as Jon Postel did before ICANN. And that China is an increasingly interesting player as it tries to control the Net's growth and use.

The .GURU domain is the most popular of the new TLDs with 12,435 customers in two days. But seriously, what personal or corporate brand can withstand calling its self "guru"? Is this destined to be the "kick me" sign of top level domains?

Digital Strategist | Graduate Faculty | Speaker | Mixologist of High-Test Metaphors

I love connecting with business leaders who use design, strategy and technology to earn a right to win with great customers. I've met them hosting the Delight Conference in Oregon, key noting for Econsultancy in London, teaching executive education at Rutgers and Northeastern.

Leading the digital strategy consulting practice for ISITE Design, allows me to learn from and advise an impressive group of business leaders as they ready their organizations to change and lead their industries.
