Celebrating the Web: OneWebDay Kicks Off in a Month!

September 22 is OneWebDay, a day to "celebrate the Web and what it means to us as individuals, organizations, and communities." Founded by Susan Crawford and spearheaded by volunteers around the globe, the initiative is helping to plan events in major cities (check out OneWebDay Canada!)

OneWebDay is a day to make the web visible all over the world: "The idea is to show everyone what kinds of amazing collaborations and human interactions go on online. And to tell stories about how the web has changed our lives. It's a transformative part of our world, this online phenomenon, and we shouldn't take it for granted."

We're just one month away from the very first OneWebDay. Grab your button here and visit the official OneWebDay website to find out more. more

'Domaining' Added to CircleID Group of Topics

Domaining, a commonly used term to identify a business focused on domain name speculations, has been gaining growing level of attention. Although the Domaining is still viewed controversial in nature, Google, Yahoo!, and Financial Institutions are just few examples of some of the growing number of larger type organizations that are highly active in the field.

Never the less, the raising level of discussions and main-stream media coverage on Domaining activities is also emerging more and more frequently within the CircleID community. Hence, we have now added Domaining as a designated location for all conversations and participants in this field.

We'd also like to encourage members to edit/add to the backgrounder page for Domaining which is referenced to at the top of the main topic page among other CircleID pages. more
