The Null Device
Planet Los Angeles
The south-east Asian country of Laos has done the equivalent of selling the spare kidney for much-needed dollars and
sold its Internet domain to Los Angeles
. Under the deal, which has been approved by ICANN, the cultural capital of McWorld is now the first city to have its own top-level domain; consequently, there are now domains such as arnie.la and madonna.la.
I've noticed that neither .lo nor .ny are actual TLDs; perhaps if this sets a precedent, London and New York can snap those up and use them to merchandise their cultural capital.
