As ICANN prepared to make a big Top Level Domain-related announcement in early 2011, JESS3 was commissioned by the Washington Post to bring a visual storytelling angle to the changing tides of domain names.

Notes Washington Post reporter Hayley Tsukayama: "The organization tasked with regulating the Web’s domain names — that’s everything to the right of the dot in a URL — released its list detailing who has applied for new Web suffixes Wednesday. Companies who applied for new addresses include Apple, Amazon, Google and Microsoft as well as prominent firms such as Macy’s, Wal-Mart and Tiffany. Each application cost the companies $185,000."
