The 2072 Olympics and the domaining business


Did you know that the domain 2072olympics.com is not yet taken? Yep, it’s not yet taken as of today. I just checked from 2016 to 2068 because I’m that curious. The olympics committee and some domain squatters registered a lot of domains from 2012Olympics.com to 2068Olympics.com. The 2068 Olympics domain is not registered by an official committee of the Olympics. I wonder why domainers want to spend a lot of money for it and registered it 56 years early! I don’t know if they can sell it in the future or just use the domain.

SOPA: Why should we vote no?


Lex parsimoniae. Because if we vote yes, we’re doomed! On January 24 this year, the Congress will vote to pass internet censorship in the Senate, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. I don’t think I should be worried about this, but I guess I should be because a lot of people are damned worried about this bill.
