Google secures RO.ME

With the help of the registry i assume. And the registry is rather late with their press release but still the technology is cool.

Ro.Me Becomes Newest Example of Strength & Value of .ME Personalized Domain

Podgorica, Montenegro – May 16, 2010 – The .ME Registry announced today that it assigned a premium domain name to Google for a web project called Ro.Me. The site, launched worldwide on May 12, is the latest in a long list of innovative websites using a .ME domain for the extension’s direct messaging and recall value. In fact, half a million .ME domains are now registered worldwide.

Ro.Me is the destination of a new music experience called “3 Dreams of Black,” by writer/director Chris Milk. The site, featuring the revolutionary and open-source 3D WebGL browser technology, was developed in partnership with Google and takes visitors on a visual voyage through three dream worlds. The song, “Black,” comes off the album, ROME, presented by Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi and featuring Jack White and Norah Jones on vocals. ROME is soon to be released by Parlophone/EMI.

“Being identified as the domain extension of choice by innovative companies like Google shows exactly how valuable the dot-ME extension has become in the virtual world of brand messaging,” notes Predrag Lesic, executive director of the .ME Registry. “It creates a natural call-to-action and sends the most direct marketing message on the Web. You can’t forget domain names such as ‘Text.Me,’ ‘Find.Me’ or ‘Help.Me.’ Web users continue to recognize that a dot-ME domain is not only the most personal choice on the Web, it is also one of the most memorable. RO-dot-ME is a perfect example of that.”

Désirée Zeljka Miloshevic, chairwoman of the .ME Registry adds, “I am delighted that half a million dot-ME registrants, bloggers, small businesses, tech start-ups and other social media and technology giants continue to find great value in the dot-ME name space, and use it creatively to best serve, promote and share their ideas and projects online.”

I can’t tell you much more at the moment, he computer i work from reports the following :

We are sorry, but it appears that your browser does not support WebGL. “3 Dreams of Black” is an experiment that was designed with the browser Google Chrome in mind. Please try launching this site again on a computer with up-to-date graphics drivers. Though not the full experience, you can also watch a video trailer, access the rest of the ROME album site, and learn more about WebGL technology.

But i could watch the trailer. And that looks rather cool. I will do an update once i get home ie acces to a real computer Smilie: ;)
