  1. Do any of these rags still aspire to being considered newspapers of record?

    Someone needs to warn future historians in search of history’s first draft.

  2. The embarrassing truth for mankind is that you can learn much more about that species from the Mail than you can from the Guardian.

  3. It’s unique top-level domain name.
    Well, of course it’s unique, they’re designed to be unique. That’s the entire point of a naming system.

  4. Wales wanted .cym, I imagine that might have turned out to be popular with some non-welsh based businesses

  5. @jgh

    Spot on. If it wasn’t unique – chaos

    It’s not new, Tuvala has been selling .TV to world for ~20 years
    eg http:/five.tv

    Italy missed a trick by not selling .IT domains as tech with something else for italy
