H’revoir Geneve

Josh Bourne ⬥ 24 February

On one of our last day here in Switzerland, Pete and I had lunch with one of our contacts at WIPO, the World Intellectual Property Organization, which is headquartered in Geneva. We discussed ICANN, new gTLDs, the UDRP and other related topics.

While here in Geneva, we visited the Jet D’Eau, one of the city’s most famous landmarks:

The fountain shoots a steady stream of water 459 feet into the air, at a speed of 124 mph. When I took this picture earlier today, it was the first time the Jet D’Eau had been on since we arrived in Switzerland. The conditions of the wind speed, direction and water temperature have to be perfect for it to be operating – the fountain is very expensive to fix, so the city prefers that it does not break. Also, the Jet is surrounded by homes and boats, and while it is running, the owners complain about getting hit with le grande eau!
