New Top Level Domain .hiv Adds Josh Robbins as a Policy Advisor; Expected 2014 Launch
The idea is simple, but the impact could be incredible– dotHIV will establish the Top-Level Domain .hiv as the Red Ribbon of the digital age. .hiv will generate funds to support the dedicated all over the world, raise awareness of the topic HIV/AIDS and work against the stigmatization of people living with the virus.
To ensure that the registration policies for .hiv-domains and the funding guidelines for the future donation allocation happen in conformity with the HIV/AIDS-communities, dotHIV is assembling a circle of advisors, and recently named me to that list! Cool, huh?
