AOPA seeks to have glider pilots

"From aarp dot org alpa six to have glider pilot squawk one two zero two for all via far ops alpa submitted a proposal to the faa on march. Twenty four th requesting the beacon code one two zero to become the standard for pilots flying gliders via far to us regardless of whether they are in contact with atc currently the one two oh two code is assigned via for glider operations that are not in contact with atc to differentiate them from via our traffic squawking twelve hundred because of the different nature of the operations while powered via far aircraft. Typically fly in straight predictable. Pez clears often make abrupt changes in direction or altitude explained. This makes it very important for. Atc to be able to differentiate gliders from other aircraft the faa in order in two thousand fifteen for far aircraft squawk twelve hundred regardless of whether they were talking to atc previously it was just for aircraft not in contact with atc in alpa. The same should be extended to be far glare flights using the one two zero two code. This change would help. Atc better identify gliders flying near busy airspace and landing at towered airports increasing safety in airspace system it would also allow glider pilots to operate using one code rather than having to change codes and flight which can be difficult to do on a compact transponder and in a cramped cockpit

Understanding Hesitancy Is Key In Changing Minds About COVID Vaccine

"Aerial plotnik is an audio producer for the post and she spoke to leana muhammad about these efforts to better understand vaccine. Hesitancy researchers want to know who are the people who are hesitant. And where does that skepticism come from. And how can public health officials change people's minds and get them comfortable with getting a vaccine and that's where this group the ad council comes in. They've released this. Psa that takes a strategy. That is somewhat surprising. I wanna start actually playing some tape. The covid nineteen vaccines become available. You might be asking yourself. Should i get it. And if i do blood be able to go about life without putting my family at risk. You've got questions and that's normal. The fact is the vaccines are safe and effective. They're going to save lives to get the latest on the kobe. Vaccines visit get vaccine answers dot. Org because getting back to the moments we miss starts with getting informed. It's up to you. I thought it was interesting that they've acknowledged that like you've got questions and that's okay. I feel like we don't normally hear that. I thought that was interesting too. When i first heard this ad i in that it as it's up to you to your part you need to get this vaccine to save humanity and our health reporter. Dante thought the same thing to now. When i first heard that. I thought oh that make sense. It's up to you it's up to you aerial. It's up to me. Dan like we have to do our part to get vaccinated. But when i asked the ad council about that they said no no. It's not about individual responsibility as much as acknowledging hesitancy.

Wet Notes - 3-28-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for sunday march twenty eighth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I want to give you an update from reef or the reef environmental educational foundation. They have released their two thousand and twenty two field survey trips and it's pretty neat. They have eleven trips. Planned in two thousand and twenty two starting with saint vincent in february and that is being led by amy lee. For those of you who listen to the show. I had amy on the show last july. They also have a cuba trip in march followed by raja arm pot in april. May june will feature saint lucia and roett tan. july is. the red sea and hawaii is in august. The september two thousand and twenty two baht trip is already sold out grand. Cayman is october bon. Air's in november and the year closes out in december. In 'cause you might wanna take a look at the reef website for all the details availability and pricing. These trips. look pretty awesome last week ned. who's a dive master at. The shop passed on a new york times article about looking for climate solutions and this article was written by catrine einhorn. Essentially she reported that ocean bottom trawling for shrimp whiting. Cod and other fish emits as much carbon dioxide into the air as the entire globalization industry. Now this was based on a study published in the journal. Nature and it was pretty enlightening. About how trawling releases. Immense amounts of carbon from the ocean floor and that leads to more acidification of the water and that reduces the oceans capacity to absorb atmospheric carbon dioxide. You can check out the entire article on the new york times website look for climate solutions by katrina einhorn. There's another piece of good news. Out of molly s this month. The honolulu star advertiser reported that a trained response team was able to free young. Humpback whale from gear entangling. It's left pictorial flipper. They were able to free about fifty to one hundred feet of line from the flipper but not we're able to get the Entangled line out of its mouth. They are hoping that that will ultimately free itself. They haven't seen the whale since it was freed. Apparently it wasn't in great shape but at least now it has a chance. They recovered gears being analyzed to see if they can determine the origin now. The efforts were led by the hawaiian humpback whale national marine sanctuary in partnership with cardinal point captains k key koala project and ultimate whale-watch. Now i've had the opportunity to go out with ultimate whale-watch from lana. A couple of times was very happy to hear of their support. We carry a lot of aqualung equipment in our shop and like most businesses twenty twenty taught many of us a lot of lessons. Well i recently sent out a message that they are introducing. A new aqualung is a bit of a rebranding. They're using a new tagline beyond the expected in the message. They said the twenty twenty taught them to expect the unexpected time to seek out the unexpected. If you check out the aqua lung website they further state that they are for the ocean exploration for ocean understanding and for ocean conservation. The aqua lung site also has a really inspiring short two minute video to get you inspired. Stay tuned for more from akwa. Long as they go beyond the expected earlier in the week. I got an email from nicole. Russell dima vice president of operations and i e mail had a lot of different information but one of the items that stood out said las vegas is open for business that means they are in fact planning to hold the demon. Show two thousand twenty one in las vegas in person and not some very exciting news. There was a learn more link in the email that took you to the dive equipment and marketing association's website where they gave you a list of all the trade shows conventions and meetings scheduled in las vegas of over five thousand or more attendees in the next twelve months. Now that was an interesting list. F why the marijuana business daily or m j biz con two thousand twenty. One is expected to draw thirty thousand people. And it's just one month before dima for all you dive pros out there. Mark your calendar for demon show two thousand twenty one november sixteenth to nineteenth in las vegas. Nevada can't wait to get back to dima and finally earth day two thousand twenty one is less than a month away earth day is actually april twenty second however it looks like this year. They are promoting three days of climate action. It starts on april twentieth. There are three lead organizations working on this educational international or education international the hip hop caucus and earth uprising will will be organizing three separate parallel climate action summits on april twentieth and twenty first ahead of president biden's global leaders climate summit on april twenty. Second what a difference a year makes. What a different political climate additionally earth day dot org will be producing the second earth day live digital event on april twenty second.

Because i think initially. We had a semi conscious agreement to never worked together. We have created separate worlds as you described each pursuing our own areas and then it was really this project around marriage that clearly. We're doing as a joint project and our life and recognize that. Initially nate was going to write this book as a solo author which we thought was going to be really interesting but thought that it would actually be more powerful to do together so now working together living together parenting together being married there is a lot of together and i think that makes all the tools we talk about even more

"Listeners it's mike schneider and i'm brett molina and welcome back to talking tech. As with many other events canceled due to the covid nineteen pandemic. there is no south by south west festival in austin texas. This year. That is true. But there's a virtual south by southwest going on online through saturday march twentieth. And i got a chance to participate. Let me tell you a little bit about it. I've been scheduled to moderate a panel last year gaming for good but the festival got cancelled entirely when we knew there was going to be a virtual festival this year the company that sponsored the panel skills decided to go ahead and do it so we recorded our discussion over zoom in late february and it was really enlightening and very made me very hopeful about things. Here there's a story. On tech usa today dot com. You can read that if you want. If you really wanna watch the panel and do all the other fun things at south by southwest. Has you can still buy a ticket to the festival. There's a link in my story for that too. But here's the basics. I learned from from the panel. The panelists we had three of them. there's a program called gamers outreach that provides video game carts that means it has like a secure tv and a game console on. It's it's either hook to wireless or however they do in the hospital in two hundred thirty children's hospitals around the us the founder zach. Weigel began the program when he was a high schooler halo tournament. The got cancelled He'd organiz the tournament but public safety official voice concerns about the high school cafeteria being used for a hobby. That was quote corrupting the minds of america's youth in quote. The guy said so to show the gamers from it meant well the next year weigel try it again and raise money for a local children's hospital with that resulting tournament part of that he learned. The hospitals often have trouble keeping kids occupied when they're recovering from treatment in their rooms so that led him to begin having online fundraising to get these. You know cards game carts into hospitals all over the country if you wanna get involved gamers outreach as gamers forgiving event online this weekend and there's a lincoln my story or you can go to gamers forgiving dot org also this weekend skills which is spelled s. k. i. l. l. z has a gaming for good tournament to benefit the american red cross.

Well listen thank you very much for joining us and sharing your insights today. Thanks so much for having me john. It's great to be with you. So folks are drew bio and is one of the things. I just love about people in search. There doesn't seem to be. Maybe there's a degree in it but i very infrequently talked to someone who has such a thing my friend. Derek clarke failed. Who from dri who also been a podcast. Guest runs another search firm. She's an ordained. Rabbi every search leader seems to have this kind of wacky wildly diverse backgrounds. So how did your professional path leader to search. Please don't leave out. How cedar performance visit scrape up. Dick place for the start and especially i love. Dr and i agree similar to her and said lord is so many people in search we. You know it's it's things that line us up for this work even though we have no idea and then all of the sudden one day it's the only thing that we can do and so funny thing. It's actually a funny thing. Because i don't i mean maybe there are lots of other professional You know sort of professional career paths. That are like that. But this one seems uniquely wacky in that way definitely definitely and i think it's people think about what their superpowers might superpower. I rarely the smartest person in room. Sometimes the most interesting but what. My superpower is figuring out who the smartest in who are the most interesting people aren't any room and then introducing them to each other and just so you just shared my bio. I've had the chance to be in so many different types of organizations then community based work and national work in global work and in different parts of the organizations mostly in development but also on the program side in operations i. I'm social worker by training as you said i've got this theater background. Which is an interesting and so when it gets down to it. I love talking to people. I loved networking. I love having genuine and authentic relationships and seeing how i can be a resource folks and i was extremely extremely lucky and fortunate when i was at you at nsf usa to have Onondaga as my leader. When i was there and he was a believer. Not you know him. Joan of stu. He believed in creating ten percent of everyone on his team's time to carve out for them to do other work something. That benefited the organization. In some other. Way wow yeah. And and that's unusual. Especially considering he was leading development team and so what we found was that i love recruiting. And i liked going out and talking to people and letting them get to know unicef usa and in so. I was having a great time doing that. But it wasn't. My core job is really a fundraiser. And it was just threw a perfect stroke of fate that i was introduced to katy baton. Who's the founder of partners and she talked to me about what her vision was the work that clay was doing. She talked to me about her values and just as she talked to me about. I had no idea what an enormous sector the search field is and how many variations exist of nonprofit search professionals.

Superhuman Engineering with Emuye Reynolds

"Humiliate welcome to the show. Thank you. I think we previously did a show with the superhuman ceo. Who'll and in that episode. We covered a lot of their high level. Challenges design challenges of building superhuman. And in this episode. I think will cover some of the same stuff but also dive deeper into some specific engineering challenges. I want to start off by asking you a question that i also asked him. Which is what are the canonical challenges of building an email client. One thing. i'll say. Is that the surface area is really large so the things you need to build to even arrive it. A basic email client is is quite a lot of stuff and then you know the way we go about building it where retreat speed is a feature. We wanted to be incredibly robust and we also want it to be really remarkable quality. That creates another challenge. Anytime you're trying to balance performance reliability and quality. There's some tension there. Do you want to go deeper into that. Like the into the the canonical challenges like given that you have been working on the engineering side. What are the engineering problems that you see over and over again. Sinking is the engineering challenges trying to keep an inbox and sink When i talk about reliability. I'm really thinking about offline and online is a challenge in general but flaky network is even harder than off line intermittent connectivity. So that's one of our absolute one of our challenges. The sort of fastness of data rate. You're you're dealing with individual email threads and messages each of which has you know. There's just so many different kinds of things that we see. That's another challenge. Parsing the different content and making sure it renders correctly. Certainly something we spend a lot of time thinking about there are so many email clients that are out there and yet there are new ones that are constantly being developed. What are the places where there are room for innovation in email clients. Yes great question. I think one of the main areas is just around these or experience. A lot of what you see is people building in companies building the same email client over and over again the same experience. That hasn't changed in years. And i think there is this just a general product that anytime you have billions of people using something They get used to using it and trying to introduce new behavior can present a challenge. But i think there is a lot of room for for companies to try to innovate there and to be opinionated. May it could be a things. Like to human treating speed as a feature mike what we do on mobile trying to allow the device allow users to interact with one hand. It could be other types of input like speech. I think speed can also extend to like the speed. People are typing and and trying to allow more writing assistance. It really comes down to the user. Experience does user experience design. Does that translate to tough engineering problems. Like i can imagine making a really smooth user interface or making a user interface that has quote a. I built in these. Are things that translate to tough engineering problems. Yeah i think so. I think it's it turns out to be sort of like. I said earlier the balance rate. Like if you're just trying to build a really innovative user experience. I don't think that's particularly challenging. But if you're trying to build it in a way that is incredibly fast also allows you to be really powerful but you want to be easy to use. I think those things present tough engineering challenges and also reliability. You want every interaction to be extremely quick but you also want it to ensure that the users intent is captured. I think those do present a very tough engineering challenges. How do you divide your time in your engineering role. I think it's It's different every day every week every but i have a few things that i'm really focused on. I'm really focused on building out our engineering team and culture and that's growing the team as well as making sure that we have an organization that can support happy engineers that are working efficiently. I spent a lot of time on the product side and really focusing on delivery and execution making sure that a lot of project management tasks are on track claburn a lot with our product team with our cto. I also spent a bunch of time actually with my hands the code. I think it's really important that engineering leadership especially to you know with small teams engineering leadership continued to really be hands on with the problems. So it's a lot of those kinds of tests thinking about our overall company business strategy and how that relates engineering and how we can really drive in as an engineering org.

We are starting with our week. Five results here starting at the top of the table. We've got an interesting rundown for you in terms of standings and by interesting i mean this should come as absolutely zero surprise to anyone who's been falling for any amount of time here this year in first place cloud nine at ten and two tied for second we have. Tsm and one hundred thieves at eight and four fourth place as a three way. Tie to round out your playoff teams evil geniuses dignatories and team liquid all remain in control of their destiny immortals to entire games behind in seventh place. Fly quest down there at four and eight and eighth and tied for ninth place. We've got seal g and golden guardians. Who that's for the in terms of standings. Let's talk cloud nine top of the table. In how did they do this week. Nine had a banger of a weekend. I'm really really satisfied with how this team performed this weekend. Everyone is looking fantastic right now. Honestly perks has some absolutely popoff. Plays on yasuo in the blank. This weekend He was looking awesome blabber. Just absolutely runs train on one hundred thieves on olaf. He's still looking amazing. I honestly don't understand how this guy still getting. Olaf when champion pool is more like an ocean. I guess you know. It's kind of hard to ban out. Everyone right yeah and then you know they also had just a pretty good win vs golden guardians. This was a really really good week for c. Nine they displayed a a show of dominance that i think is important for them to show versus lower tier teams and upper tier teams like hundred thieves the takeaway from this weekend see nine looking fantastic. I'm happy with this team. And my favorite thing about this team this season so far is they have displayed the ability to play like everything they can play. All sorts of different team calms they can play all sorts of different styles and be super successful on it so lots to love from. Cnn radio man. I wonder what it's like to be a fan of a team. That's like the best in the region. Can you feel so good what it feels like to be yankees fan fan now recently. Hey man at least. I always tell myself no matter how bad things get. At least i'm not. Cgi got even fan. Just seal g actually entire org. at least you're as an entity the idea mostly. Yeah yeah oh yeah. I was just gonna say overall c nine great weekend moving on. Yeah and i think a key point here is they did go up against one. Hundred thieves created separation against a team. That's currently tied for second. They did in just such an incredible manner. It was like every single lane. One like blabber just played out of his mind perks actually styled on monday on the blank it was just such an awesome game. In addition to that there was actually a little not really an interview but ls during. I think it was a co starring. He was doing as well. Fudge seanang fudge came on just chatted back and forth with him a little bit and revealed that perks. Basically said yeah. It's just demonte. I could totally take leblanc into him and fucking popped off. I think he got a level. Three solo kill level three or level. Four to play a little vision. Game with perks had award kinda thwarted the whole thing and it cost him onto his life. Basically and the game like there's no way or less. Yeah that snowballed everything out of control so his brutal really really. Well played for nine showing that even if they were close in the standings. This matchup is just so nine favored. There's also been a lot of chatter specifically from people who are in the know that one hundred thieves has a major mental block against the nine. They absolutely hate playing against him. So little fun. Little tidbits for y'all there. All right seni- jumping down to. Let's talk about the two teams tied aid right now for second place. Tsm and hundred thieves. We'll start with the less fun. One which is of course hundred thieves. Who has kinda struggled a little bit throughout the course of this entire split. Not looking nearly as strong as i think we all would of hoped. Jack's talked me about their weekend. All right so other than the cloud nine game that we just touched on mcleod nine blew them out of the water. Hundred thieves mostly had a good weekend. They beat seattle g. They had a close call but they then recovered from their close call. Took control of the game back from seattle jian won the game Close calls is more of like they. Lucked out into a wake-up hopefully they don't make same kind of mistakes of leading finn. Just do ridiculous nar things when his team's losing miserably they literally flipped a to k gold lead into four k gold back. Yeah and flip within like eight minutes. Yeah it was stupid. That's nuts g. You can hear this hill shawn's voice because the game had it but from the perspective of hundred thieves like other than the one mistake that was such a huge swing the game. Well they played really well against dignatories capping the shit out of fate god and the rest of the team playing fine or or well depending on the player like demonte didn't have a great day in general. Don't they didn't have a great weekend in general. Let's be honest but then yeah the cloud nine game like to cut blown out in twenty four minutes. It was brutal you mentioned it was monte attempts to do a bush play like bait something to get away and that was the only thing like someday played without respect for fudge it all and got punished repeatedly for it like it was rough. It was really rough.

5 Top Advertising Trends to watch out for in 2021

"Of the world now that we've begun twenty twenty one. I thought i'd share with you. The five top advertising trends to watch out for in twenty twenty one. Do you want to stay on top of the latest advertising. Transfer this year. Do you want to know exactly how to keep your customers. Engaged whilst using innovative creative techniques and technology to promote your business and products. keep listening. I've got you covered boone. Today has looked into the crystal ball and pulled out all the necessary information that you need to note to be ahead of the game this year. So let's get started number. One user generated content. Ugc is way uses create and promote their own content for a brand on social media and it outperformed itself in twenty twenty fall beyond brand created content to be specific ads based on user generated content. Receive four times higher. Click through rates compared to average at as well as twenty eight percent higher engagement rate compared to standard company posts content is created by customers using filters that brands create on snapchat or instagram stories through tiktok videos or even to instagram orioles with the use of tagging and hashtags one of my favorite examples of a brand utilizing user generated content is by the iconic which made its mother's day campaign featuring images and footage of real mothers at home in lockdown struggling with home schooling crying children and so much more. What i love about this campaign is how it is not only unedited. Unfolded user generated content but that it is using this content to remind others. Today are not alone that there are so many people going through the same struggles as they do each day. User generated content is predicted to only saw in twenty twenty one with the use of tiktok. Instagram rails live stories are more. There are so many options for influences to create attention grabbing content. That is relatable fun to watch and so incredibly convincing it has water mouth marketing in a virtual space where word spreads faster than in the real world after all nothing says trust like content created by someone. You completely relate to an empathize with on social media number two in game advertising last march nintendo released animal crossing new horizons and it sold more than thirteen point. Four one million copies in just six weeks if you onshore. Why so many were sold. Some external research about now is advised if you are up to date as you or your son daughter niece nephew cousin parent or even dog plays this game. Twenty four hours a day. Then you can understand the hype about this game now. What is even more fascinating about. This game is what some browns have done by partnering with animal crossing for example marc jacobs release their own virtual collection online allowing users to dress avatar in the luxury clothes of the brand off so they entered a unique code. Only six of their favourite pieces were presented as they are a luxury designer brand off audible but one brown took this partnership to a whole new level. The branded gem oh in france in partnership with the agency caused beef decided that as physical shops are shocked. Why don't they opened a shop in a video game and that is exactly what they did. Their brand or ready to wear clothing was a hit in the animal. Crossing game as these types of clothes are exactly what people were buying obsessively during lockdown comfortable affordable and cozy. The video game was advertising in itself. And if you look on the blog of this article you will see the clothes referred directly to real pieces in real life role who wouldn't want a virtual shopping experience in their favorite video game. If you check out the blog page you'll see some images of the close in real life transported directly to avatars in the video game. This type of advertising is predicted only to rise in twenty twenty one number three product placement. This is thought to be the oldest trick in the book but we predict that. This trend has only just begun from stranger things to suits right down to friends. They're sneaky ways that bronze managed to incorporate their products into popular tv shows and movies. While sixty eight percent of product. Placements lasts for five seconds or less product placement is the largest in foster scoring market in the us generating billions of dollars in revenue which will only grow in twenty twenty one. The next time you sit down to watch your favorite netflix. Show look out for the cleverly place logos of brands to catch your is subconsciously. This is a multibillion dollar market in the advertising industry and it will expand to new heights in two thousand and twenty one for example. If you check out the blog page you will see that in a snapshot from the show stranger things. The logo of burger king could not have been less subtly placed in the image however other times the product or logo is so subtly placed that you might not even notice it the first time round. This is a multi billion dollar market in the advertising industry and it will expand to new heights in twenty twenty one number four nostalgia marketing the world. We live in is not only fast paced but driven strongly by looking towards the future. I also don't need to remind you of the struggles that our planet went through last year from the loss of loved ones due to covid nineteen the loss of houses due to bush fires. The loss of black lives in a fight for equality and so much else. I also can't put into words. The pain that some of us have felt during this year therefore we believe that nostalgia marketing will be boosted to new heights in twenty twenty one studies have shown then style gives our lives a sense of meaning and continuity there by having a positive effect on on mental wellbeing. It brings us a sense of happiness amid chaos and reminds people happier and simpler time thereby encouraging you to buy the product to remind you of all the happy memories nyc pepsi gucci. A mountain jew are a few brands that adopted such a strategy of marketing. And they use this. During twenty twenty. Whilst the wild was trying to navigate itself through unpredictable and unprecedented times for example cheetos included nostalgia marketing in that twenty twenty super bowl advert by introducing cheetos popcorn the advert featured the nostalgic feeling of eating a bag of cheetos up finishing with bright orange fingers. This is something that so many people who are watching the super bowl could relate to as they remember being in the yummy and messy situation when they were younger. We can therefore expect to see some blasts from the past appearing soon on your screens as brands triton transport. You back to the past with some old time favorites. This type of marketing is certainly not new. But walk goes around certainly comes back around and it seems like twenty twenty is where people can use a boost of happiness and a sense of nostalgia number five brand activism purpose driven advertising. We saved the best to lost. Twenty twenty was a year of so many surprises and filled to the brim with certainty and fair for the future. When the world was at a low point many brands were seen taking a stance by voicing their support for those that are struggling. Reebok twitter nyc vocally showed their support for the black lives matter movement through their social media pages. Some brands went even further by inserting brand activism. Into that branding. An even products for example ben and jerry's created the on fudge off future campaign in which they teamed up with the climate council and to fifty dot org australia to encourage the australian government to ditch fossil fuels and use renewable energy. Instead they created a whole new flavor of non dairy ice cream and passing allies it to address the australian prime minister directly saying day. Scott morris make fossil fuels history and a portion of the proceeds from each ice cream was donated to three fifty australia. This was ben. And jerry's way to voice that concern about their is about climate change and to use their power to drive a campaign to pressure the government to invest into one hundred percent renewable energies brand activism. Is trent that will grow to new highs. This year more and more brands are standing up for what they believe. In and this is what makes brands authentic nowadays at noon today we have seen firsthand that campaigns driven by a pappas gain not only ten times more engagement on their platforms but it also shows that browns are committed to

"Nice oxy. Ceo People don't even after Andrew Sullivan published a Polish. This latter saying you know we're not going to pursue you still get these responses from eff. Saying like we're obviously stoke on a pursue a deal. And what do you do with the fact that they're not even acknowledging that you have said that we have gone on the record as saying we're not GONNA do it. Yeah and and again like I understand both sides of this But I'm I'm hesitant to impart motives. Well I know I have so so you know I had one lawyer from USF. I'm a phone and he said this is nothing personal said well. You know I'm just going to tell you that if I had said set option destroy. Eff or set out to explore path of activism that might lead to destruction. You would probably take it personally fair enough. You know so. Allow me to take it personally. I'm astonished and I would be happy to be proved wrong and I've given them opportunities to tell me that I'm just wrong. But they're not telling me that all right. Let me ask you raise. What I think is a more interesting question. Okay which is this if their view is that I can't has the kind of superpowers necessary to take dot org away from PR and from Izhak. Now even though we have a contract that is you know it goes for another nine years. Why couldn't they Charles if ethos had acted badly let's say ethos and succeeded in buying Pr Dot Org and had done all the things that was going to do? And then started miss. Misusing its ownership rights. And why couldn't why couldn't anyone have said okay? I can we now. We all agree that you have the power to save dot org by ripping dot org away from ethos right if that's true then the threat model that the transfer ethos somehow makes this..

"When the deal was first being debated we had on board member Mike Godwin who is also famous for a bunch of other stuff which involving his name. We had him on to debate the rationale for the deal and at the time and still to this day. I felt someone uncomfortable with the deal but felt that Mike Godwin raised a bunch of very good points on the other side about why the deal was perhaps. Not as bad as I thought Now that the sale has been blot. I'm having Godwin returned to the podcast to discuss something of a postmortem of what happened. And what what is going to happen going forward so Mike. Welcome back to the PODCAST. Hi I'm glad to be here and I'm certainly glad that I don't have to defend a deal. That is now no longer could so I think we can. Do you know we can definitely do. You know post game analysis you know and really understand you know what what could have gone better. And what didn't go well. I know we've covered a lot of this when we last spoke about it. But I'm happy to drill down. And by the way the the the deal was terminated the deal was terminated between ethos capital and Izhak was terminated mutually. So we're both both parties are pretty free to talk about it. I under the terms of the deal. So that's good. I feel a little bit. You liberated to be able to answer any questions that I actually know the answer to well. That's good frankly. Because sometimes these things come with sort of gag clauses and gagged. We're gagged. Well that's good so I mean. Can you just describe at least from your point of view like what what happened and described the basics and cancer stepped in and said they would effectively blocked the deal? But but from your perspective. What is it that went down? Well I think really a two things happened And maybe personal. Let me lay the background a little bit. Which is that when I can. You lifted the price caps for DOT ORG and renegotiating its contract Or Dot Org That really that really poison the atmosphere and made a lot of the DOT. Or we're really made. I think most of the DOT ORG activists community alert. You know that something bad may be happening. Any minute. Bran and so We you know we were aware of that. But we also knew that I can at least theoretically was in a position to correct any thing that any future holder of the dot org top level domain did. Because it's a matter of a contract with I can. I can do all sorts of if it really wants to that's And this is a view that I it turns out. Eff shared with me As it turned out but I think that when you and I did our podcast We did talk about the price increases but the price in the the the lifted. There was no price increase and committed to stable predictable. low level price increases over a ten year period or eight years. I forget how many years it was but I think that A lot of people were concerned about pricing. Initially and some people argued that the lifting of price caps is. What made this a valuable property for exploitation by private capital in my view. None of that was true. It was always the case that the reliable returns associated with running the business. Pretty much the way it has been run over. The last nearly two decades was was the was the value proposition for. So can I just push back a little bit and and that that may be true but but to some extent? Doesn't that contradict with the claims that you were making one of the reasons for the sale? Was that you were concerned about the future. Prospects of the DOT org domain in the world was changing and that as it stands right now. Pr is sort of A funding source for Izhak. And all the good work. That Izhak does and you were concerned. That relying on that was was dangerous and yet here. You're kind of saying that that same sort of you know.

"I have to ask you as someone in this landscape. How do you explain this shift? How come people have become? So aware of their surroundings I mean people say millennials are so selfish and it sounds like that's very wrong. She issue that first of all the voices in your head plenty of people plenty of other people have those voices in their heads and the skeptical and Salon but there's a huge shift in the past two years I think a lot of it obviously, the new generation social media, a lot of connected to the media. TV. Movements in the past couple of years he to. We've seen movements, women, apartment. We see movements global global warming and there's a lot of things happening. In this kind of what they're growing ancient, he's just kind of what they're educated. You take courses in college which you related to our, which is four percents responsibility or or doing good. In, this is what you know. This is the new generation growing into and I think that as we as the years go by, you're gonNA see more and more and more and more of it because this is what's around the all the time now argue with both you I I think there's A. Reason I think it has to do with Mesler slow. I think that people are not trying to survive anymore that like the idea is people were looking for a job to get paid to get access to really good things and right now getting access with a mobile phone that costs eight hundred dollars and and living and and getting enough money is a lot easier than it was in efficiency is a lot better than was, and now there's they the khaki. Style style companies are have not differentiation. There's so many different places to work at no one really good. If you're like on the tech scene, you're not going to be out of job you may have to have lesser stuff like that but they can actually ask the job am I gonNa Learn am I going to be challenged and you just things which is high priority already because everybody pays them around the They're going to do about the same thing and you have enough reach and information on the Internet. And that's good for you the business site but like I feel that it's that social. FACEBOOK and everything doesn't help. Much So it's like more of a privilege. Yeah they're not like know various probably all of ours they had to go to work. You know, okay you can freelance new dot com he do outsource the live rounded, and now the mortgage somewhere what what am I gonNA learn how to give back to the environment? What do you think of that? So. My question to you do you think privilege or just the priorities change I the same thing because if they don't have anything each, you can think about your priorities, right? If you have children in, you're in a bad spot or by if you're a I in a good space and you have confidence, you're cherry picking Laura swimming that we're talking about the same. The same demographic dot was ten fifteen years ago we're not talking about the people that need to eat they. Still need to eat today and I'm sure they care about the money and it still didn't under one reason, right? Don't get me wrong money is still the number one reason in the US benefits as well. insurance on But I think that priorities also change with the new generation for us. This wasn't a thing just like go will work on all your thing on this don't work right and still make my still understanding defer still understand that money as. Evolves Changes things but. I think the priorities change I think that you know in the past these were dot was may be priority, number eight or ten, and now this is number three four. So how come why it's because a lot of because of this generation distribution is exposed to things that we weren't too like in my I. Don't you know in my when I was younger when you volunteering from each like was like you do it once a year maybe and you go paint the wall that's what I know volunteer right but it's not it's not there's a lot of other just a lot of different things you can do and benefit community you can send with kids helping three right but can I challenge you? If you're in debt or if you if you, you don't know what you're going to ends meet with said, would you asking interview bravely? Can I get this job like? What you've like, what are we volunteer in? You know what? I mean. Something that that that that you really need the job, it sounds to me like something that is kind of You know Nice to have. You know what I mean. It's not a must. Yeah, and again like I mentioned I, don't I don't think it's the first priority. I don't think that if you're the salary that you are offered is really good in the benefits of insurance was really good and then they told you know we don't do any community you're gonNA say no fully. I think again I. Think it's IT IS I. Don't think it's it's it's coming from provability just think that it's a different priority list. We ought. We were younger and I think obviously again money if you don't have anything to eat obviously you've gotTA survive you're still people surviving I don't think they asked him about Hong Tier right right now but we're talking about the other the other side, the company's that's really I understand the the the the idea because that's amazing when they d- what you did. Is Amazing, you actually gave so many options to differentiate socially so that all those in might be privileged you say is the most they have re I really good pitch to say they do all these activities and great ideas for HR reasons. It's amazing and so I have a question what kind of activities you see that are the most popular we have the traditional volunteering is going about composting and and about recycling popular soup kitchen is popular now that the holidays is coming along drives our popular wrapping for kids in Toy drives for kids. Now that the winter is coming we have it coat drive as well that you know. You donate coats and things like that We also see popular things like. We have a cocktail making class, which is popular, which is that both we have a music archive which you go into New York music archives. So yet receipt, we see a mix again, tradition jarring is always the number of the popular thing because you feel a lot more impact than than. The just stronger at that point that you interact with the non profit and you use your hands and do things. But yet, but we have yet there's two. Different things are really popular, and then how did you reach the? Founding visit dot Org because you must have tapped into this This state of mind of this generation you must have identified that and realize that you can connect the dots between their need of doing something bigger than themselves and companies. Needs for. Define it because I'm taking it to HR reasons now. Okay. Let's let's call it. needs to do good as well. Okay. Like people, WanNa do good. There's the companies that want to do good and there's the people the employees and you figure that you could provide a solution.

So this is the second point that's really important for listening this thirdly if we maintain the current pricing model that PR has has has imposed And we allow for PR and for us to invest back into the into the domain name. There will be growth now to the point that there hasn't been transparency currency around the the transaction this is completely incorrect. We have engaged with the community and with with leaders on several occasions. We had public questionnaires. We have spoken to community leaders. We have engaged in public discussions. We have taken on every single concern that the community leaders have a- and tackled it clear have reached out to a esther several times from the very beginning of this transaction to explain into her what we're trying to do and to get her input. Esther is a leader in this field and we have always wanted to be on board with so Nora. Nora just mentioned something here if I may just ask you two who questions On the point of transparency. Then are you able to tell us now who ethos is. Investors are. I can tell you that. All of e sauces investors these are American entities at that have been checked. And that's we are very comfortable working with meaningful. I cannot give you the names at this point that this is not a. I don't think it's appropriate for this conversation to be talking about the names of investor and then on the other point about growth being where the value will be harvested listed from. How much growth do you anticipate needing to achieve for it to be of meaningful profit for ethos? Allow it to operate as it has now without having to handover sixty million a year to Izhak. So that's sixty million sixty a million would go to eat those investor I suck was his without handing that over. So if you don't have to hand over sixty million yearly from PR. Yeah I are Nice sock. Pr will be able to grow because it would be investing in itself and it would that sixty million would not going back to the investors investors. And I mean we have Loans that we have to pay back but the investors are looking at this very long term. Okay so I'm going to go to Indra solvent here in just a second but esther dyson returning to this issue of this concern. Overselling of data that Ethos so's might be able to get off operating dot Org Nora said very very explicitly. Just now that that won't happen in that it can't happen okay. So then I call on you Nora To say what this gross means because I do not want to get marketing everyday saying bye. Another dot org domain name and and so I still don't understand what it is that dot org is going to do or sell that's going to generate all this growth. Let let me simplify. Let me simply you have an asset. That has been sitting there and handing over all the prophets into another important entity with a very very good purpose right now we are liberating US assets and allow it.

"You. Hi What's glad to be here. Yeah so what's at stake. What's at stake so first of all? We founded C- core in November December not to make a bid ourselves but to ask. I can't do. Its job and to consider are the bid from Isa's much more carefully and we believe that if they did most likely they would say let's just leave things the way they are and if we need to change change anything let's do it thoughtfully and carefully the issue here is whatever I- sox needs are they're going to get a fixed amount of money and Isa's paying that fixed amount of money because like any private company they think they can take the asset. They're buying thing and make more money by probably changing it. Maybe cutting costs reducing service slightly selling the date of the registrants. 'CAUSE USA does have other businesses that are in the data brokering business. We don't really know but it disturbs us because fundamentally a not for profit is run and is not owned by anybody but it operates for the benefits of the registrants and people that the registrants work with and we don't think turning it into a four profit is likely to help it continue that mission. We'll semester if I may I'm just trying to think of all the many many people people who get on the web and use on radio DOT ORG for example in literally give no thought to the Dot org part of the address right because it's just as common as air. Why should they care? That's what I'm trying to figure out like. Why is this seemed like it's such a high stakes? The agreement that's gone. It's really riles people up. But why I think it offends our sense of justice and righteousness and we're concerned again that it's it's like taking you don't take person and sell them. I mean I you know I don't WanNa get into release you know. It's not the same as slavery but it is in that same direction. You you take something with a purpose. That's beyond money and you turn it into something whose purpose is.

"Invest in being better and adaptive an offering more in maintaining the kind of immense positive branding and positive symbolism that it has now and as far as I know You know whatever you may say about the deal that we made. We made a deal. That was more forward looking than any alternative. I've heard so far and and I get that I think my my only in this'll be sort of my concluding thought because we can just go around and circles on this forever but I think we've we've covered most of the boys. My only point it on that is that you know given the the symbolic value as you say of Dot Oregon the importance of it within the space as sort of a A marker of of credibility to some extent especially for the public interest and civil society. groups that it feels like there. I should have been some clear you know. Not Not just stated commitment but contractual commitment of the new owners to maintain that in some form former another that would give you know more comfort to those who used the dot org domain space and those who rely on on those using the dot org domain space to be good stewards of the public interest. And so that that sort of my final comment on it and I think the thing that's still sort of greats me in in the back of my mind About the concern for the steel. Yeah so so I think and I respect that I think I think that's that's all fine The what I what I really believe is necessary. Is that He he is that people recognize that we can't sort of like lock in Dot Org to where it was in the year not thousand or two thousand five That an order for a dot. Org Not to recede into irrelevance We need to empower the people running To Sabbath and I agree and I know I already said I was. I was giving giving my last word but I'm GONNA. I'm GonNa Interject here because I think you're answering something slightly different than what I'm saying. I'm not saying that that DOT ORG needs to be run exactly the same or manage exactly the same or offer for the same products and services. I I'm saying that there is a you know. It's a question of the sort of commitment to the public interest that is is associated with it and I think that there are ways to to set. Set it up contractually that the new owners yet. I have a response. I have a response to that. I think that Here's what we have urged you know what we are. What we in our communications with a with a successful better for the business? We said you know you're GONNA have have to do a lot of this stuff We didn't put it in the contract because in some ways. That's not our we don't have the superpowers required to do that But we told them that this would ultimately be how they keep this deal and how it it survives lives you know scrutiny by I can and how it survives scrutiny by the Attorney General of the state where Public Interest Registries Inc. Inc They're gonNA have to make these public commitment so we'd do not believe that we had the power to make that and enforceable condition of the contract given the the nature of our relationship with with with PR and with dot org which is kind of A. I mean it's a little a little complicated but it's not outright ownership like deed to land you know it's basically a kind of a license relationship. We had a license in licenses or not property interests as such they're not like huge universally excluding properties interest. So what we said. Was You know the the road to the the success of this deal involves ethos capital making a series of public commitments. And they have been trying to do that. Ah If you are critical of how fast they've done it you know Metoo But but I think I think they're doing I think they're trying to adapt for quickly and figuring out how to keep this steal a lot because it's quite clear to them. They know that if they do not adequately adequately sure I can and other stakeholders that their mate that they're going to live up to these commitments. That steel can ultimately be killed. Now Yeah all right I. I think that's a that's a fair statement and I think that You Know I. You've certainly raised a lot of good points. It's given me a lot to to think about I I'm I'm still I. I need to think about this some more and I'm sure our listeners Feel the same way but I feel that this was a productive discussion. Now this is I wanted to have this discussion with you is that you know and I you know I did not. We did not agree on the questions. Ahead of time no CMIH fumble around to make sure I know what I'm saying but but I absolutely here's what I could have done as you know I could have just pitched you. The you know a defense of the deal in written written form to say maybe it runs at Navy tanker. Doesn't I didn't want it to be that way. I wanted this to be kind of an interlocutory exploration of what we think. The issues are so at least at the end of the day. People who care about this stuff can sort of see what we were thinking at the Internet society and see how reasonable people who mean well now and who care about saving dot org might have chosen this path. Yeah and and and I think I think you've made the case very well and I and I appreciate that and as always it's it's fun to discuss anything with you in an even more fun when we might not be the same side which is not often the more podcasts.

"We didn't want to be attending those public events Even when the deal had not yet been formalized formalized and then sort of announce like the minute after those events are over that that it had been close. We knew what we needed to do was get the commitment the basic commitment in place and let people know and to the extent that we could share as many details as we could and be willing to take some hits right upfront. which as you can tell we have done? Yeah so I mean you you know one of the other things that certainly come up is sort of the some of the sketches in terms of the people involved and whether or not this was sort of a backroom deal that that everything about it was is a little odd that you know the people involved so there are two arguments here and you can make one but like you know one. Is that the people who are involved in ethos capital apple certainly know the domain registry space. And understand you know sort of the issues of governance around running a registry and things like that but the others that it feels it. Feels sketchy sketchy again. Because like you know count number four or five in other words that might be worse. I know I know you're having your headline attacker article said this is not merely sketchy. But and it's sketchy sketchy well I mean that's the problem right because like like there are there are and I did use that word on purpose and amusing it here on purpose because like there are worse words that I feel slightly uncomfortable using Because I don't think it's clear I think part of the issues that it leads to the perception that makes people distrust the deal and I think that's a concern whether or not the perception is real or not It feels questionable and sure and I get that I actually get so let me. Just let me just unpack act this a little bit And I'm aware of all the reasons that people might be suspicious of insiders. You know who have some special knowledge you maybe have some secret plot or maybe not secret plot to capitalize on a on a dot Org t. l. v. the in in managing it And and and I've heard criticism of various individuals for some time but one of the things that was interesting to me. Was that that one response from Wind Group of critics was to assemble their own set of insiders to say no. We'd be better insiders you know Up to To manage organ. They have this idea that they're going to persuade item to break. Its contract and just handed over without paying any money which which I think actually audacious. I liked that but So that part I kind of admire but But those people were insiders to in you know some of them have been criticized for their own activities in the space. So let me just take a kind of different stuff on that and say I think that what you ultimately rely on is not you know what you think about in particular individual or not but what they are bound to do by law and by contract and by agreement by public amendment. And the I'm one of those is a lawyer. I've often had to deal with people that I don't like but have to do business with and I've often often found that there are people. I really love that I would never do business with and so you have to sort of sort out. You know what your gut reactions. Orange particular people from weather set of decisions makes sense or not and so I would. Maybe want to drill into that a little bit but I I i. I'm not telling anybody to like anyone who's involved in the deal or to like me too like I. I don't really care in humming. That's not that's not the purpose of my performing in this role. But I do think is the real test of whether this deal is good is the performance of it and I think it's appropriate for stakeholders to monitor it and be certain that everybody lives up to to their promises and that goes in every direction by the way so if I you know. Internet society gets a big chunk of change and then doesn't spend it in ways that make sense let's philanthropy. I expect Internet society to be appropriately criticized for that. You've already got the money. Yeah remember I don't have the money right the it's not my money. I'm an unpaid trustee. I'm like I'm actually like the poorest person associated with Internet society. I think so so. I'm not you know I in terms of getting the money. That's you know it turns out that if you are a registered charity media registered. Ngo A nonprofit. You actually have a huge number of regulatory compliance criteria that you have to meet so no. We can't go have a big party. We can't go. You know have a year of sampling Tequila shots. We actually have have to be responding with what we do with the money. So now let's let's get to you know one of the other aspects. We haven't talked about which is important. which is you argue that that you believe in looking at that this is actually good for PR itself and the sort of dot org domain space? And there's been pushback on that and the pushback generally comes down to the idea that you know what we've already talked about that that You know that that the the private equity organization sation might sort of strip it or you know You know use it to to extract Money for itself and thereby harming I mean that so. Can you make the argument for why you think this is actually better for PR. Sure sure so. So let me So one thing I'll say at the Out says that people think that a a cap a private equity firm that buys a business does is it for the purpose of stripping it for parts in effect for cutting costs and increasing revenue. I actually had. And when I've what I've noticed by the way is that I hear this primarily from people who've never actually you know known about things like business this brokerages the fact is that if you have a successful business that there's a market for buying a successful Oh business. That doesn't have anything at all to do. With stripping it for parts or maximizing money if the businesses already successful you may just want ought to own the successful business and that's why and that is the reason for most for many. I at least I think for most acquisitions in the in the private private enterprise world but I would add to that this which is that With public interest registry. There is an obvious. The biggest obvious obvious cost that can be cut is its obligation to send it surplus money to Internet society. You know so what happens is is Bhai if you WANNA look at it in terms of cutting costs. The costs that's cut is paying dues. You know to Internet society so that so that as a a a non a nonprofit or is a for profit enterprise and by the way as you know Dot Org was was run and administered by for profit. Enterprise for years and years without doing anyone any harm in that period The the if you WANNA look at it in terms of cutting cost the cost is they have to. They don't have to tie all their surplus capital and send it to Internet society and that I think is going to be hugely constructive in the long term and this is why If you look at the top level domain space you know you mentioned the in the early years there were really just a few top level domains that you could buy you know there were there. Were others that you really couldn't by country coach till these and in a couple of other. Tld's Dot Edu but he you know the if you if you look at the top you know if you look what happened in the top level domain space sense then what you find is that there are essentially and I think you mentioned this. To their like a zillion top level. The Maine's now they're just a huge. It's number and in a sense. The value of a top level domain is kind of an inflated currency. Right with dot org being one of the few a instances of sort of maintaining the long term value maybe dot com count certainly dot. Edu in some sense counts but when we looked at when we were trying to project trans we saw that potentially the dot org the business of administering dot org which was going GonNa be on it. There's a really serious prospect that it would be on the decline not just in the long term but even in in the near term if no changes were made and you know the dot. Org Tld can't invest in offering new services and improving itself itself as a platform because of the nature of its nonprofit status You might say well. Internet society could invest in improving Pr In fact. We can't because we have our own charitable obligations to spend money on other stuff. I are so so we were like this weird death grip of of to nonprofits like Siamese twins you know and and and the question is how can we separate the two nonprofits in ways that that will lead to happiness for both of them and so freeing. Pi are of the burn of supporting the Internet society. I think who was that was what was decisive for me. You know if there's a path to freeing pr to adapt and grow and figure figure out what it needs to be in the next ten years or twenty years or fifty years. You know that is a that is something that we need to think about now because we can't think about it after it's withered away. And and the difference between what we put together and went some of the critics propose. Is that their proposals. Their alternative hearted when one of at least some of our left to stay in place. Let's just not do any deals. We're GONNA keep everything in place is that that doesn't offer any promise of future future growth or adaptation for dot org either and then the other people who say well. We don't want to pay any money. But we'd like to give dot org to administer I I don't think it goes. People have a lot of money to invest in improving. What Dot Org and offer so so you know you may have appropriate appropriate skepticism? About what private enterprise can do. But I will say to private enterprise. That's pretty good at assembling capital in a hurry for for technical businesses us to adapt and so that was. I think you know the fact that this would be a way to save dot org and in my view the best way the way that's most likely to save it beyond my lifetime was the thing that decided the issue for me. Yeah I I think there's there is something to be said for the idea that like the the entire sort of you know. Top level domain space is changing. And I mean you brought this up earlier that that you know what you use your. Tld is is no longer as representative. I mean for the the longest time you needed to have a dot COM And I would argue certainly over the last five years maybe even a little longer the need to have a dot com has has diminished greatly lately and increasingly of course people never type in the domains they just use google as their Their way of finding anything on the Internet And End and assuming that that will bring you to the right place whether or not you know the correct top main not And so there is something to the idea that the entire their domain registry space is changing and being able to adapt and change to. That is an interesting one The question then end still remains is like you know is is ethos really the best player to to You know to handle that. Change into to walk Pr through that process. I think one question. You may be or indirectly raising using is maybe we should have had more competition among beds. Maybe there was a way to do that. We have there was always competition among bidders for the PR. Ah Business but maybe we should have had an auction. And I've heard I've heard this. A criticism offered a number of times. And I believe that there is a compelling reason not to have auctioned off the compelling reason is this we built. Pr Right which is a currently a nonprofit. which as always the case with nonprofit has a lot of expertise expert people who are beat? You're we're being paid under market rates because they are committed to what PR is offering. And if you tell all those people who've taken can kind of already the financial penalty for working for a nonprofit and say. Hey you know this thing that you're working for we're putting it up for auction. Don't worry you know we're going to get the best price and give it to the best better and they'll have lots of capital and I'm sure it'll all work out for you that is demoralizing. I work for a nonprofit that that was happening. Happing to that there was a public auction for. I would be sending my resume around a lot because you just don't know what the outcome of that is but no no. I'm serious every talk. Well but what we did instead what we did instead was we did a lot of consultation as we got to the final L. stages with pr not just with leadership although certainly we did with leadership that also with people who work for PR and it was You you know his clear that they were nervous I mean nobody thinks nobody was good. You know glib about it but he but I think one of the takeaways was we. We really cared about protecting them. And protecting that business. And I think that was one of the reasons that public interest registry and its own board voted Unanimously to approve the deal and then so the sort of final area that you had said sort of convinced you to to make this. This decision was good for Izhak. Okay good for PR okay What about good for the overall Internet? You know there's there's a lot of concern earned that this will this creates a a level of potential harm for for the open Internet in. What your response to that? Well you know. I've spent a big chunk of my time in different parts of the world asking people what their model is and.

"I I agree about that. But here's the thing the owners I believe agree about that too. And they're good economic reasons to think that they don't WanNa do that. You don't want to spend a billion dollars or whatever and lose half your half your An an and be halved in size at the end of the day. That's one sure. And the second thing is I think that if any owner of public interest registry industry and anyone operating dot org top level domain did some massive extortionate increase in prices that would destroy dot org forever and it would never be replaced by another -til the you know there would be no other. Tld that would ever have the name equity that dot dot Org. You know that we have been careful to bill over the course of years decades so I usually sell. Yeah I mean I just think it would be hugely self-destructive destructive But but the way I think about it when I first heard about this you know this sort of nightmare scenario was it reminded me of you. Know in the original nineteen seventy eight superman. The movie where lex Luther Plan is to sink the California coastline. So that you get a new coastline has a whole oh bunch of new beachfront property on it. That's how the scheme sounds to me. It's like you know we'll we'll sure millions of people will die. We'll destroy destroy everything that was there but we'll have more beachfront property and I just think you know there is no lex luther here I mean there's you know that's even even in the movie that was understood to be kind of a weird comical comical proposal so you'll have to believe me but I think that if if you look at the financials for pr what you see is the thing that makes pr. An attractive purchase is the guarantee predictable addict eighty percent of its income from reliable renewals year-by-year and price craziness. Just just put that in jeopardy and makes it less valuable not more. Well I I mean I think that that is the question that does come down to whether or not there really is locking and how strong on the lock in it so you know so I think that that you do have a point that like Dot Org certainly has has branding and name recognition it was one of the original. Tld's right. I mean for a while you you really had dot com dot net and dot ORC in terms of what you could purchasers dot Gov dot. Edu as well but And so there there is bring there but you know we are also dealing with a private equity firm that now I was going to try and maximize profits and there are certainly plenty of examples of private equity firms in particular with let's say a less then long-term view of how to extract money from the assets that they've purchased and you know very focused on extracting as much money in the a short term as they can and then sort of you know dumping off the Husk of of whatever it is that they've purchased and so I think there's there's a reasonable concern and they're right and that's because all the people who saw superman in nineteen seventy saw the movie Wall Street and I guess it was like nine hundred eighty six. You know they have this sense that what you know what you know what the banks do or with a venture capital when they buy something up is strip is stripped for parts you know and and sell off sell off other pieces an increase the stock and then sell it as a higher valued stock or they split but right but you know but this is not entirely a movie scenario or a one thousand nine hundred eighty scenario. I mean we're seeing that today in terms of private equity firms buying up pharmaceuticals. We're seeing with private equity firms buying up journalism organizations. There are multiple examples of this kind of thing happening thing that that I think certainly raises concern. Now I know those are no. You're absolutely right. It is true that That there are a private equity firms. That are bad actress or that act destructively or corrosive way and I think the examples that you give are really interesting thing because in the case of pharmaceutical acquisitions you know typically the you know the pharmaceutical products and questioned those things for which demand is pretty much inelastic. You know so of course you know if you have the killer Interferon based you know cancer drug You know you have unique things saying that nobody else can ever have anything like or you know. There's no it's just not the same thing if people have alternative therapies. That's really not the the same thing at all but the differences that you know at the end of the day top level domains are just series of bits. You know so so that even if they're you know the way I- analogize this you know for most of my life and for most of us to believe you know it was important important to know if you saw people's area codes on their on their phones and you just sort of knew where they were and now of course we're progressing to appoint where having a two one two or two. Oh two or three one O or two or three area code is not symbolic. Ah You know where you are where you live. It means something different and I think what we're having in what we're dealing with in the top level domain space race is something. That's a little more like that. There's a set of conventions that we've gotten used to but we could adapt so that their if somebody does something really destructive. We could respond and adapt and honestly. I just. Don't think anybody just to come back to the reality principle for a minute. I don't think anybody's by you've got two billion dollars to spend has the idea that they're going to Piss it all away by destroying value. Yeah I mean the argument is is not that the argument is not that they'll piss away. The value of the the argument is that they'll extract the value of it right for for their own benefit as opposed to the sort of long term benefits. So I asked people what that scenario looks like and what I found is when we try to drill down into kind of mechanics of how that would look you know. It's not exactly I mean you know. Of course who the PRI- if there were price increases that were big surprises. You know that would I actually would hit the speculators right there with the domain name speculators. I because those people are Are Holding portfolios of domain names. But the second thing I think and this is probably one of the things that I think has been helpful about the reaction one of the one of the things I'm willing going to say is a good component of the reaction is that you know now the now the civil society community and all the dot org registrants that's who have legitimate purposes are aware of this and and they're not. I don't believe that I believe that..

"You know the fact that that I can make some move against most of the comments that enables calls there to to to to create much more potentially much more profit for Whoever is running the dot org domain and then right after that so that you know in a sense like the move by can clearly boost the value of PR because it opens up the possibility of making more profit and then a few months later suddenly? So you know whether or not there are deals in the past that Izhak rejected You know that move alone boosted the value of PR and so that looks sketchy and it feels. Feels sketchy right so let just let me say at the outset of this. You know. I've now experienced a few months of having people second. Guess what we must have been thinking Internet. Assuming the worst so I I. I have a lot of sympathy in that kind kind of at least narrow respect with I can because I have a similar negative impression about cancer. moving the half the price caps But the basically the interest in purchasing PR predates that. And and I am so that's one piece of it but then the second thing is did we get a lot more money because they can really take the lid off and Jack up the prices cases of renewal and I think that that's wrong I mean it may be counterintuitive but the reason. I think it's wrong. Is that if you look at the financials year over year for PR. The renewals are the thing that makes the money. And so you oh you know this is economics one one where you now that if you pry if you raise the prices for anything for which the demand is not totally early inelastic you're gonNA fall off shore so so you know you know for example Melk at the grocery store you know you can increase. He's by ten or twenty percent of the people who need milk will still lean mouth but if you increase it by fifty or two hundred percent then people start thinking about what are my other choices besides melts. Sure are you know but I mean domains are not exactly like milk right. I mean you do have an element of lock in there right. which is that you know once? You've established alisher domain. Once you've established brand behind it the ability to just switch domains because someone jacks up. The price of renewal is a lot harder it can beat done and there may be a few cases where it has been done but it seems pretty rare because you lose a lot of benefit you lose the branding benefit you lose the google benefit you know you lose is the benefit and so there is element of lock in that that for everyone who has those domains it is kind of hard to give it up google benefit because you know how I when I look up Electron Frontier Foundation. I don't just look up the DOT org versions. Look you know Google or any other. Search Zhijun will absolutely find the resource that I'm looking for whether I add to it or not eventually but there are stories of people changing domains. Where where there is there is is a period of adjustment and and you know that that can certainly and in fact there are also cases where you know I I've seen where like Google might get confused because there's two different domains and the things copying the other and it could punish them and so there are there are all sorts of issues there where it's and plus it's just like you know technically there's there's there's there's work involved and there's broken links and things that need to be adjusted it is not? It is not so easy as saying. I'm not going to buy milk. I'm going to buy almond milk. Often offers of Auburn milk is a really bad choice. Secondly secondly I you know the way I originally thought when I would hear this theory was for I I I wanNA pass globally over the fact that if that if the new Registry Operating Dot Org chose rose to do some crazy jacking up prices on renewables that that would be hugely disruptive. I I agree about that. But here's the thing the owners I believe agree about that too. And they're good economic reasons to think.

"org" Discussed on The Dentalpreneur Podcast with Dr. Mark Costes

"In today's episode episode weekend episode. We're GONNA be talking about something that I think is very very important and something that I didn't have handled when I had my first six dental practices. And that is is the organizational chart so the bottom line is you want to have the fewest number of people as direct reports reporting directly to you as possible and what I did wrong in the beginning. The early part of my career when I had several practices and about fifty employees was that we had an organizational chart at all and everybody had direct access to me. Now it's not not that I didn't want to be in touch with each one of my team members in that that I didn't have personal connection with each of them. There's just not enough time in the day to the be dealing with everybody's issues While you have bigger issues like perhaps if you are the CEO of your dental practice end the primary provider you've got you've got to be really really cognizant of how you spend your time so you don't necessarily they want to be the person that each team member goes to to verify that they have a day off coming up or you don't necessarily want to be the person that is dealing dealing with conflict between two employees that should be delegated to somebody else down the organizational chart for instance your your Office Manager Manager or Your Front Office lead or your regional manager or your director of operations or your lead hygienic or your clinical director. So so in other words you want to be able to check in with one or two key people as the CEO of your organization but in order to do that you have to correctly. Put your organizational chart art together. And that's what we're going to talk about in this eight minute video slash PODCAST CLIP I hope. He has enjoyed this episode. I hope you get some value from it. Have a great weekend. And we'll talk to you soon. The organizational charts as a CEO. You should strive to have the smallest number of people reporting directly to you as possible. Well no more than one person should fill a role but a person can fill more than one role. Okay so as have all heard the story. When I had my first six dental practices practices? I didn't have an organizational chart seventy people working for us and everybody had direct access to me now. This might be a problem that you guys have already solved in your organization but it is a big problem. If you don't have an organizational chart that that people follow okay so we WanNa make sure that the fewest number of people have direct access to you that mean that you have a closed door policy and if somebody has has a personal problem they want to reflect with you that you're close to it now you're still a human being but when it comes to business and it comes to the practice and they come to people asking for time off or whether or not you know whether or not they can. I don't know whatever the question happens to be. You want it to go it through the proper channels so that you are not inundated with Minutia K.. So if you put the organizational chart together the right way you'll prevent that from happening so you as a CEO should have maybe one or maybe two people that are directly. Oh yeah you have one okay. We have a organizational chart worksheet so one or two direct reports sometimes three you have the clinical director who who would be in charge of all the hygienists the lead hygienists and the associates. And then you have the operations manager or the office manager that is going to be in charge of everybody else. Okay so you have. The Office Leads Front Office backoffice maybe marketing director hygiene okay so anything clinical is going to go through your clinical director and that could be you know in clinical open door policy. Anything related to practice. Management is going. Go through the Operations Manager for me in my practices. It looks a little bit more like this I have. I have a a director of operations who is in charge of director of operations is in charge of the clinical director. WHO's in charge of the regional managers and they're in charge of all the OEM's and it goes all the way down the line? Okay that's that's the way that mine is created one direct person. That's one direct report for me K.. And that's about all I can handle. Okay so can I get a copy of okay so your organizational chart worksheet here as a CEO you should strive to have the smallest number of people that are reporting directly to you know more than one person should fill role but a person can fill more than one role and a person can have more than one direct supervisor from different departments for instance a clinical and administrative straight of Supervisor K. C. here. They'll say wrote okay so we're not going to do this together because we just don't have the time but you guys I want you guys to do all of these exercises on your own list out all of your employees in the organization. Give each employee employees a title. If they don't have title right now give him a title you should have. I know this is going to be politically difficult for a a lot of you guys but you should point lead for each department. You should have a lead back office. You should have a lead hygienist. You should have relieved front office. And then you have an operations manager or an office manager or a director of operations okay so give everybody a title now. The director of operations could potentially also be or the office manager also could be potentially the the front office lead. That's okay. They're allowed to to wear two hats. But what you don't want is to people in the same role you don't want to office managers you don't want to front office office. Leads or back office leads our hygiene leads so somebody can wear more than one hat but each role only has one person it can. I do you guys mind sharing your story this is a great story like grit illustration this they and they and they execute on this so dsm insuring your office assistant manager. Okay It was a Tuesday night..

"Yes thanks for Thanks for asking. The the the Internet society exists to build promote and defend the Internet the global network of networks that we all rely on and the way that we funded our activities for a number of years has been in a large extent to rely on the revenues that come from Dot Org. That was the reason why there was a re delegation back in two thousand and two in favor of the Internet society and so we were approached. We didn't go looking for this but we were approached by some people who wanted to to To buy this and it seemed that what they wanted to do was invest in this top level domain for the benefit of their customers. And at the same time you you know we would receive a significant amount of money which will allow us to continue our work to make sure that for instance all of the people who are unconnected in the world can can get connected to the Internet intranet. Okay but but why so was it for money. I mean the daughter Registry generated about one hundred million dollars in two thousand eighteen and it helps fund the Internet. Society's mission why would you give up the cash flow so the the that's the revenue that The daughter produces but in fact on the Internet society receives about forty five million dollars. A year on this Ah Chunk of change. It is it is a significant amount of money. There's no question about it The the the current arrangement is such that this is an annual Income from an operating business and what that means is that the Internet society needs to pay attention to that operating business so what we have is a company. Pr Public Interest Registry. That's the company that that we're looking to sell and and what that amounts to is a thing that we have to pay attention to but it's a separate business. The the the world's that Jacob was talking about Is is a a community of people who run all of the various top level domains And and you need to pay attention to to that industry in order to be effective in it. Yeah that is not really our core business. So what we're trying to do is make sure that somebody who really is interested in those in the operation of those things pays attention to do it in a way that we can't can we go through a few of the specific issues. People are worried about many nonprofits worry about increased fees. I want you to listen to some of what we heard from. Charlie Kray who's the political and and business strategist at Greenpeace. That may not affect Greenpeace. If it's a slight increase in the fee but you're talking about something that might apply to smaller nonprofits traffic for whom he makes a big difference and we are concerned about that because we have many allies in a movement that is largely grass roots in its reach and now drew Sullivan. Is there a chance that small NGOs and charities wouldn't be able to afford a dot Org Registry under new ownership I don't think so the the new The ethos capital has committed to to continuing the historical practices that That we lived With which was about ten percent a year. So that's dollar remember. This is only the wholesale price that we're talking about the only part of this that That the DOT Org Registry has any power for over is how much it charges to its customers and its customers are the registrar's the registrars of the people that you and user my by a top domain name from and they set their own prices so this is just the wholesale price and it's ten dollars right now so if it went up by ten percent it could be eleven dollars next year. Okay the new contract also gives the dot org registry the ability to shut down domains of organizations that are accused of illegal activity. I'm Charlie Kray Greenpeace is also worried about that. The the use of this kind of arrangement could facilitate attacks on nonprofit likely. NPC used You know tactics like nonviolent direct civil disobedience protests and seve ably there might be countries where non violent public protests in is illegal and and therefore a government in such a circumstance might say petition the company and say this is an organization that regularly breaks the law. You shouldn't allow them to be registered on the Internet. So what reassurance can you give nonprofits. That new owners won't shut down civil society groups that may be breaking laws in Tehran countries. The the way that this agreement works is It's an agreement between the operator which will remain PR. And I. Hi can and the the terms of that agreement changed this year and they changed to reflect a standard agreement that the entire industry has been moving towards because of policies that the Internet corporation for assigned names and numbers has adopted through a consensus process within that organization. So so all that has happened happened is that we have agreed to a contract that every other top level domain has agreed to that contract isn't changing. It's not changing because of the ownership or anything like that. It's just the same contract contract. Everybody else has now. It could be that we think that the That this was a bad idea for I can to adopt those policies but that's a policy the decision that needs to needs to be taken up inside the I can community. It's not something that the ownership as such is really relevant to see you're saying that's a legitimate concern but not something that pr can deal with or ethos capital. Well IT'S A. It's a concern that people have had about these provisions in top level domains More generally and I think that There is a discussion to be had within the I can community about how those How those mechanisms to work? But I don't believe actually that the ownership of the D. is is relevant to that because remember a private company or for that matter the Internet society has an an interest in maximizing the number of registrations. That's where the fees come from so You know putting this in the hands of private company is not more likely to to mean fewer registrations. They want more registrations. It's a subscription model. I add host of ideas. Join me on a deep deep dive into contemporary thought and intellectual history at ideas. We explore everything from the roots of Talibanism to the evolution of Denim. No topic is off limits. Each episode cracks open concept to see how it's played out over place and time and shows why it still matters today. Subscribe to ideas on the listen APP or wherever you get your podcasts. Let's talk about something concern. This more philosophical to people around the World Dot Org means nonprofit. What do you say to progressive organizations? Who are now going to be paying fees to a private equity firm connected to the Republicans and big corporations Well there are some. There are some investors who are Republicans but at the Internet society. We like to say that the Internet for it's for everyone and that includes Republicans Even if you know we do not have a position on their political on their political views. The the The basic idea of that the dot org. Tld is better for It's better for the the nonprofit world because it is owned by the Internet society is not really in any of the agreements. It's not really in any of the history there There was some early discussion about that. And there has been then a lot of effort to make sure that that the concerns of people who are registered in dot org which is overwhelmingly nonprofits That their concerns are but that's a competitive market. When this when this registry was transferred to the Internet society it was two thousand and two two thousand and three a a lot has changed on the Internet since then and there is a really large competitive market that I can't has created among various. Tld's and that means that it tends to keep prices low. It tends to provide services for this organization for these kinds of organizations. And that's what ethos wants to buy. They want to buy a business. That's that is functioning and can deliver these Things to this community and then they want to invest in it and so when we were evaluating this we thought in fact that because we have not been able to pay attention to this because we're focused on connecting you know three billion people around the world who can't afford Internet access at all. That's what we're really focused focused on. We concluded that this transaction was in the interests of the people who are registered dot org the various NGOs around the world and also it's good for pr we are and also it's good for the growth of the Internet and so we thought it was good for everyone Andrew Sullivan. I thank you for your time. Thank you. Andrew Sullivan is president and CEO of the Internet Cnet Society. He was in Amsterdam. Jake multi with save dot. Org Campaign is still with us. Jacob what's your reaction to what you just heard from Andrew Sullivan. So many things Look I don't think that there's anything that people can say. That are behind this field to justify their actions because their actions actions have just sean that they betrayed everything they stand for And people are serious. I mean I think this deal is gonNA GONNA stop. I don't think it's going to go through. We do know that it is being reviewed but but but the new owner ethos has has issued a statement saying it is committed to keeping dot org accessible and reasonably priced. What makes you is that something that you still doubt? Yes I do. Because it's a mechanism that matters. He could turn around and flip this to somebody else you know. Within in a couple of months the whole deal itself came together in a week. So what's to stop them from doing another deal in eight weeks. I mean there's nothing literally nothing to stop them from flipping into the Russians. You know so. That's the whole problem with switching it from a nonprofit to a for profit model. I think people have kind of seen past this notion that like ownership doesn't matter well it does matter I guess partly part of that speaks to the remarkable growth of the Internet in the past twenty five years. So what needs to change in your remind in the world of Internet governance to deal with this. Well look I think nonprofits and foundations in particular need to start paying attention to these issues ace for me. This is kind of like the Internet's BP oil spill. It's like wait. Nobody was paying attention. And now we've got oil over the Gulf of Mexico. I mean that's what this is and and nonprofits and foundations and other people need to start investing in Internet governance paying attention and showing up at these forms because the only people that are showing up right now or facebook and Google lobbyists and you can hear the way Andrews talking about it. He's like this is a business and you know we run it like a business and I just can't believe it honestly I mean this. This is dot org. It's not supposed to be business. We will leave it there. Jacob Mulhouse thank you all right. Thank you very much Jacob. Malthouse he's a leader with the save dot or campaign.

"The online conscience of the Internet Internet's dot org really is a symbol of doing good doing better aspiring for something And I think you know it's really disappointing to see it. Being sold off to a private equity firm. It feels like kind of the last Unicorn on the Internet has been killed old. Is it the fact that has been sold to a private equity firm or to this private equity firm ethos capital. I think the fact that it was sold off to a private equity equity firm and the fact that it was sold off with no prior warning. They just kind of said. Hey surprise were selling it off for money. I mean it's a bit like imagine the Queen Waking Up one morning and telling everyone she sold off Buckingham Palace to Airbnb But you know it's fine because the monarchy is gonNa make a whole bunch of money and also tourist your speech going up. So wh what can you tell us about ethos capital. Which is the firm that set to buy? Well no one really knows a lot about it. We know that the former mercy O of icon. which is the domain name regulator is somehow associated with it? We know that you know the one of the CEO Oh Eric Brooks is associated with demand name companies that. They've been in the industry. You know ten generally for a long time but they really were just set up about six six months ago We know that a couple of the investors are associated with the Republican Party Mitt Romney's Fund and the Ross Perot fines. These are some of the investors but other than that. We just don't know very much about it. Mitt Romney being Republican senator. And Ross Perot. Of course the late Failed a presidential candidate. The families fun up until now what. What is the Internet society? Which owns it supposed to do with the money? It raises dot org fees. Well they basically typically claim to use it in the interest of Internet users around the world so they got the rights to run DOT Oregon. Two Thousand and two you and they you know applied to I can regulator to run it and they claimed they were gonNA stewardess on behalf of nonprofits and in the interests and nonprofits Edson spreading the Internet Gospel around the world. And I think you know this is kind of why everyone is so surprised. I mean it's basically like they sodom. I'm sorry their reputation on a nuclear bomb. Just exploded it it's You know is the mushroom cloud is attracting some attention. So what does save dot org calling for. But we want them to suspend the sale and basically hold up to their own values and the values that they've committed in front of the community to say hold a global oh consultation on the future of dot org like. Don't just sell it to a private equity firm you know. Stand up and how ask the question all the nonprofits around the world who rely on this infrastructure structure. You know what we do. We don't want to run it anymore. I mean it makes ninety million dollars a year but we don't want it so you in gauge the community. That's what they were set up to do. Don't show surprise everyone. All right. Take a multi. Just I want you to hang on for a moment. Andrew Sullivan has.
