A primer on new Internet domains

The new top-level domains are making the news again, and based on the mass media I’ve been sampling, they’re coming with a great deal of sturm und drang about how this will ruin the Internet, make everyone’s lives miserable, or force you to watch porn while Russian mobsters raid your bank account.

I think that’s all more than silly, so I’m linking to an article I wrote for TidBITS last February. Shorter version: top-level domains are mostly as important as your area code in determining how worthwhile you are.
