Notions, not nations

16 March 2010

It’s great that Google customises our searches so that we get results from .au so prominently, but I think that the order of domains in IP addressing is a bit 1950s.

The order of systems should go from smallest unit to widest. Just as a commercial brand like  Macintosh operates seamlessly across country boundaries, so all the people reading .edu sites have more in common with each other than all the people within a nation.

Edu is the widest unit – it should come last in the domain name.
