Internet naming spotlighted [infoworld.com]

...also, some trademark issues addressed in this article.

They've been proposing this stuff for year. There are way to many politics and too much money involved for it to pass now. What a nightmare.

Way more than a year, I had a client CPA firm that wanted me to get them .firm back in 98 (maybe even '97?). A rash of name-vendor websites developed to "hold" your registration application so that when the dot-whatevers became available you'd be in the gold rush (seems to me there were 7 new first level domains).

yup - don't think we will see them in the near future or possibly ever. My favorite so far was the company taking pre registrations for the .web addresses. I think somebody retired to a small island after that.

To tell the truth I think there would be no small advantage in having .eu for europe. But .shop , .firm etc. sounds...sort of like "blecch!".
They're facing an enormously enormous awful task with this one, and I don't envy them one jot.
