Thanks to @luisrazeto I am reading a little book by Albert O. Hirschman, "Getting Ahead Collectively"

If you or a non-profit that you know and love use a .org internet domain name, be advised that the ICANN registry want to remove the price cap limit that only allows the annual registration for such domain names to go up 10% each year.
