ICANN created a history project documenting its formation nineteen years ago. I’m captivated by the interviews: corralling support and preventing disputes between so many interests seems like an impossible task. I couldn’t imagine the current political climate would come close to breaking something away from the US government with such bipartisan support. Their policies are downright ridiculous at times, but their history is certainly rich.
When T-Mobile entered the wireless scene as the “Uncarrier” I was impressed. Their greatest contribution to the carrier ecosystem is consistently adding features, forcing other carriers to keep up. Instead of rationed text and voice, we’re in a world where data is king.
However, if you are considering T-Mobile service, I suggest reconsidering. The plans and features look appetizing, but their execution leaves a lot to be desired. I would not count on their unique features; just the now-basics with worse coverage.
I wrote off my initial experiences as anecdotal, but it became cumulatively enough for me to leave their service.
GoDaddy has received a lot of bad press for their support of the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA), which they helped write and from whom they are exempt. However, GoDaddy and many other registrars should be avoided for more simple reasons.
