Add these 2 places to your guidebook of the British internet

At the Oxford Social Media Convention, I met a young man from Nominet UK. Nominet UK registers all top level domains dot.uk.
Nominet UK is a not-for-profit company. It took a while of clicking around their website to find that out!
That information should be in their footer, shouldn’t it?
This young man told me he was a Trustee and employed by ??? Nominet or a Trust run by Nominet?. Couldn’t find the Trust on the Nominet website so I googled.
There is a Nominet Trust and its institutional framework is clearer. It is a charity and the information is on the front-page. I must have been talking to James Kemp.
Here is its purpose
“We will consider funding UK-based and international Internet-related initiatives in the sectors of education, research and development, safety and inclusion.”
What odd wording “we will consider”.
The project must be capable of delivering what is promised. Shouldn’t we take that for granted?
But this is a link you should remember if you are interested in inclusion and the internet.
