The French Connection

We are a global community.  The Internet and technology have connected our world, making it smaller as our population grows larger.  We share everyday experiences with each other around the globe.  Our actions connect one region of the world to another.  We face tremendous environmental issues affecting the health of our planet and ourselves.  Economic and humanitarian challenges affect all of us.  We must re-think the way we live.

The timing is right for the .green Top Level Domain.

DotGreen will help boost the green movement and the green economy. The gTLD .green community on the Internet will add speed to an urgent situation by providing GREEN, a Global Response to Environmental and Economic Necessities.

DotGreen representatives Annalisa
Roger and Sebastien Bachollet received positive feedback for DotGreen and an applause from the audience of 150 domain name industry leaders and IP attorneys.  Many attendees had expressed their concerns about some issues of ICANN's new TLD roll out, scheduled for later this year; however, the DotGreen initiative and project were received positively.

The event was held January 26 and 27, 2009 at the Forum de Grenelle in Paris, France.  It was sponsored by AFNIC; the registry of .fr, the country code Top Level Domain for France; EURID, the registry of .eu, the gTLD of Europe and .bzh of Brittany, France.

DotGreen spent a morning with technology titan Doug Engelbart, a pioneer of the digital age.  Among many achievements, he invented the computer mouse, and led interactive computing and hypermedia decades before most had computers in their homes.

On February 10th, in his office at SRI International in Menlo Park, California, he told us he wants humanity to use technology to move us faster towards our urgent goals.  He feels strongly that we need to network, collaborate and harness our collective I.Q.

We discussed his ideas, some of his inventions, the Internet, DotGreen and the future.  Over lunch, we shared our personal stories.  Engelbart is warm, genuine and fun.  The world has benefitted tremendously from his many contributions.

With John Deneen, Jennifer Knoll and Engelbart's assistant Mary Coppernoll looking on, he gave DotGreen Founder Annalisa Roger a personal tutorial on one of his many inventions: the five key chord.  This innovative technique allows a person to type with different strokes of the left hand while using a mouse in the right hand. 

According to his website, "The Doug Engelbart Institute was conceived by Doug Engelbart to further his lifelong career goal of boosting our ability to better address complex, urgent problems. As he sees it, both the rate and the scale of change are increasing very rapidly worldwide, and we as a people must get that much faster and smarter at anticipating, assessing, and responding to important challenges collectively if we are to stay ahead of the curve, and thrive as a planet. In other words, we must get faster and smarter at boosting our Collective IQ."  Read more by visiting:
