New gTLD Applications Revealed From ICANN

ICANN




Yesterday ICANN revealed applications from about 500 companies for new generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) that could devalue the coveted .com extension and open up a barrage of legal issues. The close to 2,000 domains, also referred to as strings, look like .aaa, .hotels, or .ibm.

Natan Linder, a PhD student in the Fluid Interfaces group at the MIT Media Lab and undergraduate researcher Alexander List have created a very clean, easy to use, user interface concept they call Swÿp–pronounced “swipe”—that allows users to drag files from the phone to the computer swiping their finger. It is an open source software, “cross-app, cross-device data exchange using physical ‘swipe’ gestures,” as they write on their website.
