The californian non-profit Tribes Learning Community, Inc. ownes the .com. The premium domain hack trib.es points to nothing at the moment.
EDIT: Trib.es now redirects to a german site named 'virtualnights.de', a viral news site. I wonder what they want with that hack?!
EDIT2: Just found out that trib.es sold previously for $1,500 USD at Sedo. Not counting any fees this is a straight loss of 1K in two years!
