Why ".it"?

I always thought this would be clear by itself, but as I am asked many times I thought it might be better to explain on the website...

"IT" is the well known abbreviation for "Information Technology". And as "Dangerous Information Technology" abbreviates "Dangerous IT" what would have been closer than choosing the domain name "dangerous.it"?

And for those that just don't want to understand: Please contact the guys running lion.cc and ask them why they are related to the Coconut Islands! ;-)
