Is There More Room for a New Country Domain Extension (ccTLD)?

You’ve seen different country domain extensions such as .tv, .co, .ws, .cc?

In the US, banks use special identification “N.A.”, such as Chase, NA; PNC, NA; Citibank, NA; etc., with NA stands for “National Association”, to indicate a national bank.

.na is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) assigned to the Republic of Namibia.

.na domain names could be branded as “National” to indicate “national” for anything, and can be made available for registration globally through companies commonly referred to as accredited registrars, such as GoDaddy.com, Network Solutions, eNom, etc.

Any company, organization, or entrepreneur can use a .NA domain for their online branding needs, such as “news.na”, “bank.na”, “money.na”, etc.

.na will soon become available for registration worldwide through certain accredited registrars.

The portion of the registration fee for the .na domain name could help generate more than US$3.7 million (N$27 million) per year for the next 20 years, a total of US$74 million (N$533 million), for the Ministry of Education of Namibia that can go toward revamping schools through Namibia.

Writing is Powerful!

There’s power in writing, and I love writing. I write just about anything, whatever I feel at any given moment, I just write; some of my analytical articles are usually about 95% accurate on whatever I predictive analyze.

A Facebook friend, Jason L. Baptiste, started writing articles about startups and then he got published by online news media, eventually he got a publishing book deal. Through his blogging and writing, it helped him to easily raise $1.5 million in seed funding for his new and hot startup, Onswipe.

For me, writing has helped me tremendously. Because through my Review for Namibia’s Budget for 2011/2012, it enabled me to easily meet with top Namibian government officials as well as aspired top Standard Bank executives to wanted to meet and talk to me.

All in all, it is easily helping us to raise our 20% or N$1.3 billion (US$160 million) in debt funding for our Groot Town Center ecosystem development.

There’s power in writing; writing is powerful. It helps to define who you are; your capacity and ability; your thoughts, belief, knowledge and skills, your intellectual and understanding of subject matters. So start writing.

Read my Review for Namibia’s 2011/2012 Budget article, it’s the most read article on my blog by top officials in the Namibian government.

Don’t forget to attend my 2-day workshop on Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Leadership in Outapi on June 17th and 18th, hosted and produced by Namib Computing Academy (Pty) Ltd. Look for ads regarding this workshop in The Namibian newspaper in coming days.

How to Keep Your Job and Get Promotion

Wherever you work, whatever you do; never let yourself to be irrelevant. Meaning that, if you don’t show up for work or don’t complete your assigned task for any reason, that no one will miss you or realize that you are not there or haven’t done your assigned duty; if you find yourself being irrelevant, then the first one to be fired or get laid off will be you.

Always apply yourself to be an important ingredient in everything; so that they just can’t do anything without you.

Getting Back to the Things that I Passionately Enjoy and Love

Since I’ve been out of college in June 2009, I’ve been really trying to catch up on the things that I dearly love doing and “may be” very good at, such as; web and projects development and most importantly; sound engineering and production.

Basically, I’m triple specialized, career wise, in Economics, Sound Production and Engineering, and Web Development.

For the Economics, I have a Bachelor of Science degree from the world’s largest and one of the finest universities in the world, The Ohio State University, and for the Sound/Audio Engineering, in which I have over 20 years of professional experience, I was hands-on trained in Denmark, South Africa, the UK, and USA, by some of the best sound engineers in the world with the help of Svend-Erik the Great, in Denmark, and I have a certificate from the world renown school for the recording arts, The Recording Workshop.

For the Web Development, that’s a self-taught speciality, hands-on learned in 1996 from one of the best minds in computer science, engineering, and software development, my best friend, Satya, currently an engineer at AEP.

FOH Sound board

I’ve had a chance to work with the best people in the world, doing live concerts with some of the biggest names, from MC Hammer, Seal, U2, to Paul Simon, live TV news and interviews with the greatest personalities such as Nelson Mandela, Sam Nuyoma, George Bush Sr., and in-studio music production projects.

I’m kind of rusty right now in sound production and engineering, since I haven’t been really doing anything big in recent years, as I was busy with my study, but it’s like riding a bicycle, and even technology has changed a lot, I’m a geek, and I am catching up easily.

What’s next for me from here? As I’m working on my post graduate study, which comes first, but in terms of music and TV production, I am developing a reality TV show, see my new production company, Flomon Productions Ltd. For as long as I am healthy and capable, from here on, expect only the best. I am meticulous and a perfectionist, which I find myself taking up more time working on a project because I only want the best on it, and everything else I am doing.

Check out this video from my church that I sound engineered, Pastor Wicker, is leading the song. It is different doing sound for a church service though, than for a live outdoor concert, but I love doing it.

Click here to view and play the video, and another one here, enjoy them.

Feel free to listen or watch more praise and worship videos and sounds on our church’s web site at http://www.pottershouse.tv.
