Google Engineer +Matt Cutts debunks myths about new top level domains (TLDs)
 
I read a post by someone offering new top-level domain (TLDs). They made this claim: "Will a new TLD web address automatically be favoured by Google over a .com equivalent? Quite simply, yes it will."

Sorry, but that's just not true, and as an engineer in the search quality team at Google, I feel the need to debunk this misconception. Google has a lot of experience in returning relevant web pages, regardless of the top-level domain (TLD). Google will attempt to rank new TLDs appropriately, but I don't expect a new TLD to get any kind of initial preference over .com, and I wouldn't bet on that happening in the long-term either. If you want to register an entirely new TLD for other reasons, that's your choice, but you shouldn't register a TLD in the mistaken belief that you'll get some sort of boost in search engine rankings.

ZJ makes a good point about life... immortality through science is something we should seek rather than shy away from.

Friday night, at home working, but pausing to make home-made pizza... so not all bad.

Introduction
Hi my name is David.

I live in Tenerife and I'm a hillwalking guide I run my own business called Tenerife Outdoors.

Tenerife Outdoors offer short breaks and holidays walking in Tenerife and La Gomera. Our walking holidays are unique and combine active days with a healthy dash of local culture and gastronomy.

I previously ran a web design agency called Nuclear Internet specialising in database driven web sites and business management and consolidation software. I still dabble.
