We are living in unprecedented times. Covid-19 has forced the world to pause, pullback and pivot. We are still in the middle of this serious pandemic with an unknown outcome of how our lives will be permanently changed. The United States are in the middle of their own crisis in which they too have paused, pulled back, and will hopefully pivot to make the necessary changes in attitudes and outdated policies developed over 100 of years ago resulting in ongoing social injustices, racism, and discrimination of blacks and other minorities.
We try to educate our kids on what is happening in the world, teaching them right from wrong, the importance of friends, family, and all people regardless of their culture, race, or beliefs. We encourage them to find ways to help make positive change. But they are young and I can’t help but think how they will look back for these times when they are older. My generation turned to encyclopedias, but these latest generations do not know life without the internet. We turned a page looking for information. They click a button or say a command! But this cannot happen without domain names.
When anything significant happens in this world you can be sure domain name registrations quickly follow. Yes, there will always be vultures who pounce on domains and squat on them in hopes that someone who is negatively affected by an environment, activity, or event will pay a premium for the domain. This aside, domains remain as the digital soap box for people to give their voices and stories to the world and I am proud to be part of the industry that makes that happen.
RIght now there are thousands of new digital soap boxes educating us on Covid-19 and fighting for the injustices that sadly ended the life of yet another black person at the hands of those who are supposed to protect us. RIP George Floyd.
Now, if there was only way to search domains with ease and relevancy to find this information…hmmm!
