Numbers and data, news and events, projects and presentations: the last issue of Quarter .it is out and, with the report of the last term, closes the year 2015 of the Italian Registry
Where can you register it? And what is the DNS? And yet, what is the "Country code top level domain (ccTLD)"? You can find a precise and simple answer, to these and other questions, in this edition of "Ask CNR your doubt", dedicated to the world of the Internet names, in general, and to the .it ccTLD.
Giovanni Boccia Artieri studies the social and cultural transformations of the “social network society” and of participatory cultures. At Internet Festival 2015, we met with him at an event called “Verità sospese” (Suspended Truths). From hoaxes to half-concealed truths, the information that circulates on the Internet is ever-changing. It is the participatory control of the Net that allows us to dismantle false truths, to correct them and to fill in the missing information. News, legends, truths and common sense suspended in a continuous social dialogue.
It was a big hit, as all the images testify: “Digital Scene”, the Registry’s space at Internet Festival 2015, where we hosted events dedicated to marketing, to copyright and the Net, to productive relationships between small, medium and large companies, to trade associations, start-ups, creative professionals and to the use of the Net as a space for children to play and to learn.

Oil, chilli, butter, saffron, eggs, flour, onions and so many more: these are the “hubs”, the culinary points of intersection, the few ingredients necessary for preparing innumerable recipes.

The 2015 edition of the Internet Festival, Pisa’s annual international event dedicated to the Net, saw the participation of many noteworthy figures in Italian culture and journalism. These included Luca Sofri, journalist, writer and director of “Il Post”, who presented his latest book “Notizie che non lo erano” (“News that wasn’t news”).
The food and agriculture industry is one of the pillars of the economy, yet we still know little or nothing about what presence it has on the Net, for example, or to what extent its companies are capitalising on the benefits and potential that the Internet can offer.
‘Mindesk’, a system consisting of a pen and accompanying software, which makes it possible to realise 3D ideas in virtual reality with the help of a visor (Oculus Rift or Microsoft Hololens), has won the fourth edition of the ‘.itCup’, the competition dedicated to startups organised by Registro .it.
