Yes, broadband internet access speed is growing, AJAX based websites are coming on board quickly, free wireless access points are showing up all over the place and graphic images are rising on the glass. Now let's step back for a moment. Here I am sitting at the airport in beautiful Toronto Canada waiting for a colleague of mine to arrive from Denver. With a little time to kill, I decided to fire up my laptop, connect it to my Verizon based Blackberry and jump on to the Verizon high speed internet. I decided to check up on how the hurricane is progressing in the Florida region and decided to go to weather.com for a peak. Yes, not as fast as my broadband connection speed but reasonable. However, what if I could go to www.weather.txt instead? (don't click on that link, it doesn't work) Imagine the potential. A text only equivalent website that speeds the delivery of information and avoids all the graphics, flash, etc. that slows the page loading down over a wireless access point. How about ESPN.TXT or CNN.TXT ? Consumers deserve a choice...you want all the bells and whistles, jump over to www.weather.com. If what you really wanted instead was the fastest text based site from this company? Wouldn't it make sense to go to www.weather.txt? I sense the world needs a .TXT based domain name so that companies can offer us a text based page. In fact, every website registered would automatically get a .TXT domain name equivalent and the rule is that it is text only! What do you think? Pros and Cons?
