This evening has seen a couple of pretty big stories coming out of GoDaddy.
First off GoDaddy CEO told reporters that the company was applying for 3 domain extensions (TLDs) including .godaddy (their .brand). He wouldn’t say what the other two strings were, but it’s safe to assume that they are more generic.
The other big news is that Christine Jones, GoDaddy’s general counsel, will be leaving the company at the end of this week. (Kudos to Andrew for scooping that!).
Christine has been with GoDaddy for years and has given testimony to Congress and international bodies on all sorts of matters involving global internet policy and law down through the years. She’s not saying where she’s going or what she’s up to (yet), so it’ll be interesting to see what she gets up to. I seriously doubt that she’ll fade into obscurity!
