The WorldWide Web allows for domain extension


And the WWW expands to allow a herd of new #domain extensions.

Except for Safari on the #Mac, all other browsers already seem to support these. Some of the fun ones that have been released are:

.art     (as in http://www.digital.art)

.camera

.family

.film

.guru

.photography

.photos

.pro

 

On Apple’s Safari, you will have to type in the http:// part before entering the web address to be directed to the right domain. Surely they will be interested in fixing this!

Other extensions are becoming available throughout the year.  Hundreds of them.

This is the first time since the “.com” craze of the early ‘80s that we are given the chance to choose some short domain names for use in our marketing going forward.

Can it be?


It has been a good 8 months since I last picked up my 8×10 Zone VI film camera, so I sold it and the lenses I had for the camera.

I am sizing down and reducing the weight I carry around on my trips.  The largest film I will continue to work with is 4×5.

At the same time, I have fully invested in the #Fujifilm X format , with 3 bodies including the new#XX-T1 and several lenses.  I am very impressed with the files and CaptureOne’s handling of the color space.  The latest addition to the X series will be a game changer for the big guys like Nikon.  I can see no reason why I need to lug around 60 pounds instead of 12 pounds of camera gear, lenses, filters, meters, and lights.

Hoodwinked


Why is it that we as consumer cannot accept a given retail price of “X”, yet gladly wait for a huge sale when the price goes from “X multiplied by 2 or 3” down to “X”?

And what if we walk in to a store when it is not on sale?  Oh well, we just buy it anyway.

Have we really been that hoodwinked by flyers and other types of advertising?

Looks like what worked for Apple is definitely not working for JC Penney.

This article made me think of the subject:

It appears you can always fall from cult status, but you cannot go from mainstream to cult.
