Domain Name News and Info Resources

A good friend of mine asked me for a list of favorite domain name news sources.  I’ve decided that this is post-worthy!  There are several places to get news about the domain name industry that I like to frequent. They have varying perspectives, but I would divide them this way:

Registries / Registrars Perspective – People who manage TLD registries and sell them to the public.
