We live in a time when an ever-growing proportion of the population carries devices around in its collective pockets capable of capturing and transmitting audio and visual information with a stunning degree of clarity with few barriers to access.
This opens the world to the minutiae of our mundane lives, interesting thoughts or information, and even footage that is shocking or documents events of interest that may not make it through the editorial filters of the mainstream media, for better or for worse.
Protests in Tahrir Square were live-streamed, innumerable political rallies this campaign season were too and so was the sit-in by House Democrats for gun control this month. It’s clear, though, that the power of streaming is not yet fully realized.
So given the raw, untapped power of streaming, it’s exciting news that .stream will enter the GoLive phase on June 28, 2016 at 5:00 PM PDT. The normal price per year at A rates for .stream domains will be $38.31 but from now until December 31, 2016 you can register a .stream domain (or pre-register before it enters GoLive) for just $2.00 per year.
Today in Internet meditations, we ask you to imagine you are walking along a path in a forest at Sunrise full of tall, majestic trees, like the ones in the Amazon. Birds twitter playfully between the branches. An apple tumblrs from a nearby branch and falls at your feet.
Through a clearing, you come across a .stream. How wide is it? What is it streaming? That’s for you to decide now that .stream has entered the Sunrise phase from 7:00 AM PDT today until June 27, 2016 at 7:00 AM PDT.
Buy one today in the Sunrise phase for $300.62 per year if you have a TMCH registration. Otherwise, submit your application to register your .stream in the GoLive phase, which starts on June 29, 2016 at 7:00 AM PDT. Better yet, .stream will be on sale for just $2.00 per year (the normal price will be $38.31 at A rates).
Now, to finish our meditation, to get home, you must cross this .stream. See you on the other side.
