It’s November already, and the best time to grow some facial hair, supporting the Movember Foundation. Also, time for the monthly DomainGang editorial. Today’s subject: getting the news out, while it’s fresh. Domain bloggers and professional industry reporters receive press releases, some of which might arrive with an embargo; a date, before which they cannot […]

With covered faces, despite the ample darkness provided by the veil of night, they chanted angry words against the domain messiah, Jesus Francus Schillingus. “Down with Schillingus and evil Uniregistrum!
