Internet Heavy Weights Staying Out of Net Neutrality Battle

CircleID CircleID: "Some of the biggest names on the internet are trying to stay out of the contentious, public fight over the future of the Obama-era net neutrality rules." Ali Breland reporting in The Hill: "Google and other household names encouraged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to enact the rules in 2015. But now with the regulations on the chopping block, those companies believe the change will have little effect on their bottom line and are trying not to get dragged in. They could face pressure, though, from consumer groups and net neutrality advocates, who see them as crucial allies to saving the rules."

Take Me To The .Shop Page, Nike!

I Want My Name I Want My Name: As many of you know, limiting mouse clicks is the key to speeding up tasks. Buttons and clickable links are great for usability and lowering learning curves, but you know a site is great when you can get around without taking your hands off the keys.
Even better though than limiting necessary mouse use is creating short, predictable URLs to specific pages. Here’s an example.
This morning I was looking online for some new soccer cleats, so I headed to nike.com to see what they had. Here was my path: Nike homepage > hover over ‘MEN’ > click ‘Soccer’ > click ‘Soccer Cleats’. Admittedly, there was a simpler path I could’ve taken: Nike homepage > tab, type in ‘soccer’.
But here’s a simpler option: just type in nike.shop/soccer. Right now nike.shop is a simple redirect to nike.com, but if they used .shop as a direct path to the page where the shopping happens, they could create predictable paths from there – .shop/soccer, .shop/baseball, .shop/running, etc. There would admittedly be a learning curve to train people to use the .shop ending, but since Nike’s already using .shop as a redirect, why not make it useful?
(Note to Nike if you’re reading this: Sorry to pick on you directly… love your shoes!)
Take note, other brands – you could be putting .shop to good use, making you a real nTLD pioneer. We have .shop on sale through the end of the month, so no excuses!
