Today is the 30th birthday of the .org domain. On July 10, 1985 the Mitre Corporation, a US not-for-profit that runs federally funded research and development units, registered the first ever .org domain. Today there are 10.5 million .org domains registered, and the US holds the most with 56 percent (Germany holds 4.8 percent, coming in second.)

Here are some notable .orgs:
