I've worked and started businesses in a lot of different industries; the healthcare industry (medical billing), the legal industry (debt collection), the information industry (investigations) and the real estate industry. In each of these industries you can find "White Papers" about the industries in general, and particular aspects about each industry. Just recently I was asked by a friend if there are any white papers written for the Domain Industry? I didn't know, so the first thing I did was Google; "Domain Industry White Papers".....sadly nothing Then I thought Wikipedia might have something when I Google simply "Domain Industry", and the only Wiki page's I came up with are; Domain name - Wikipedia and List of Internet Top Level Domains - Wikipedia. Then I think to try AboutDomains.com and DomainWhitePaper.com and nothing. This brings me to why I started this thread.....as big as the domain industry is, why hasn't someone like ICANN Verisign or even GoDaddy done a "White Paper", or at least contracted with someone to write an industry white paper? Can anyone contribute to this conversation? Thanks.
