Internet Satire

Yesterday the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers agreed to add seven new domain names to its list. They will be dot name, pro, coop, museum, and aero. They will be available next spring. Its the first addition of domain names since the 1980s. In a satire, the NPR Players introduce an "old timer" who says the old domain names were good enough for him. He thinks the kids nowadays are getting soft. They need Visors and Palms. The Newton was good enough for him.
