Why Domains? [...]

I guess if you really want to incorporate domains as part of your program, one of the foundations would be asking faculty to dig a bit deeper. This does not mean they need to become sysadmins or programmers, but they would need to get a strong sense of how these infrastructures work and what is possible with open source tools like WordPress. This would mean discussions about open source applications, running multiple applications, encrypting your site, exploring plugins and themes, information architecture, files structure, file naming, archiving, etc. All things that push against the seamless solutions that often elide the underlying logic of the how and why these tools work. So, a domains initiative without a focus on the technology that undergirds the web never really made much sense to me (Source)
