The "lock in"problem - redux
Ok, screw it. The way to solve this problem is to simply say
a domain name costs $35, period. It doesn't go up. Ever.
If a registry has a problem doing it for this much, I'm
sure there's sombpdy that can step in at this rate.
Anybody can buy a domain name from the registry that issues
them, no mandated middlemen such as core to jack up the price.
I'd rather see domain names be free, but that doen't scale. Some
joker will simply take them all.
This promotes efficiency, prevents lock in, but does not
prohibit for profit registries and rewards efficient
The most important thing in the programming language is the name. A
language will not succeed without a good name. I have recently invented
a very good name and now I am looking for a suitable language.
