I hadn't even heard about this landrush:

I received an email about this yesterday. I don't think that I will bother, but you can pre-order domains, as they won't be generally available until midnight on 1 April 2011.

I spent a few grand on .asia and .tel s which both were apparently a hype so I never bothered with newer ones .me, .co etc...

Im .so outta the game!

I really like my .asia sites, they're very popular with "western" businesses trying to source less costly products:-)

I'm beginning to wonder why I have my .tels other than brand protection? As far as I am aware no one uses them to find me!

I like my .asia domains too. But I think I paid a lot for one of them.
In regards to .tel, I printed out business cards using my name + .tel otherwise I haven't used other names at all. I was more disappointed in paying 35 dollars per year for the .tel's otherwise they are ok.

.so seems like a waste.

Hey, at least it's another tld that can look good with an empty query parameter- example: IsThat.so?

A few others that work:
- WhatAbout.me?
- IsThatA.no?
- WhereYou.at?
- HowDoYou.do?

I have 4 left for brand protection, even though I have .mobis linked on my bigger sites and one of them even ranks well in the regular SERPs, hardly anyone seems to use them...I get more goole.com/m/ visitors to my normal sites than .mobi.
