(It's since been updated for 2019.) And harsh, it is. I don't necessarily agree that we are nothing more than our value to other people. But as far as learning new skills,...

ICANN Proposes Allowing Unlimited Fee Increases For .Org Domain Names

GeorgeK writes: ICANN is proposing allowing unlimited fee increases for .org domain names, which currently are allowed to increase a maximum of 10% annually. That 10% annual cap on fee increases came about after the huge public outcry that ensued in 2006 when a comparable proposal to eliminate price caps was made, and successfully opposed by the public. It seems that ICANN did not learn from history. Nat Cohen explains why the new proposal to eliminate price caps is a bad idea. Similar proposal...

Melting Permafrost In Arctic Will Have $70 Trillion Climate Impact, Study Says

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Guardian: The release of methane and carbon dioxide from thawing permafrost will accelerate global warming and add up to $70 trillion to the world's climate bill, according to the most advanced study yet of the economic consequences of a melting Arctic. If countries fail to improve on their Paris agreement commitments, this feedback mechanism, combined with a loss of heat-deflecting white ice, will cause a near 5% amplification of global warming and i...

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel has sold Wall Street his rose colored glasses, but when the effect wears off it’s going to hurt (SNAP)

Snap investors initially cheered after it reported its quarterly results Tuesday. The reaction was an indication of just how desperate many seem for some semblance of good news from the company. Setting aside Wall Street and investor expectations, this wasn't a good report; Snap posted a huge loss and its user base is still smaller than it was a year ago. What's more, the company seems to be underinvesting in areas that might help it grow in the future. Visit Business Insider's homepage for mo...
