Internet Expansion

NPR's Larry Abramson reports on the expansion of Internet addresses. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has chosen the new addresses, which will come after the "dot." The new names include: dot-biz; dot-name; dot-info; dot-museum; dot-coop; dot-aero; and dot-pro. Existing suffixes include dot-com, dot-org, and dot-net.
