Registrars are our natural ally

In the Get-Scoble-On-The-Web thread on Facebook we tripped across something that's worth noting on the blog.

  1. First Joseph Rooks pointed to a program Namecheap is running to encourage students to create more web content. Makes sense. More content, more names.

  2. I said: "Joseph you make a really good point I hadn't thought of. Our natural allies in this are the domain registrars. Their fate and that of the open web are one and the same."

  3. Out here in developer-land we're creating tools that make the open web a richer writing environment. Things that need names.

There might be other natural allies of the open web. Have to think about it. And thanks to Joseph for the interesting tangent.
