A few weeks ago I published a post about xtranormal, a free online text to video tool. It’s a fun way to create animated videos and inject a bit of humor into your communications.

I’ve been around the domain name space for over a decade, and I’ve been following the new TLD story closely. Seems like every time ICANN comes close to finalizing the plan, there is a new delay. Apparently some Internet constituencies¬† just don’t want new TLDs to happen, no matter what¬† changes or provisions are made.

I didn’t always feel this way about new TLDs, but I last wrote about this topic in 2008. A lot has changed, and now I say freedom for the right side of the dot! (This is my view and does not necessarily reflect the views of my agency or any of my clients.)

So I thought it would be fun to do a quick video on the topic. If you’re in support of new TLDs, hopefully you’ll find it amusing. If you are against them, I encourage you to make your own xtranormal video — it’s easy!

  1. You should make one with *actual* gTLD dialogue. Try copy-pasting from the transcript of this week’s GAC meetings.
