Leaving Search Engine Watch

In a move that has left many a jaw open Danny Sullivan will be leaving SEW to pursue other interests. This is a major blow to the SEW brand and even worse it is VERY public. I don't know Inverse media from a hole in the ground, but I know Danny Sullivans name very well. Inverse Media wasn't linked to by hundreds of blogs/websites for their groundbreaking interviews with major industry players, Danny Sullivan was. I can't believe they would let something like a contract get in their own way of success. Figure out something that will make Danny a happy camper because your market share disappears without him.

digg - ICANN proposes massive increase in domain name prices

Simply amazing. It seems the ICANN is pulling a UN level of we can do whatever we want. In attempting to give domain name registrars the ability to charge a variable fee based on percieved market value for renewal of domain names. Why should any registrar be allowed to profit from anothers hard work and money invested? At what point did the registrar do anything to support that business with a investment? Yet they are allowed to extort a variable amount so a business owner can keep his lifes work going?

Incredible.
