---- The Domain Dialogue: Death? Depression? Same Old Same Old? Evolution?

The current crisis may shift more value to nationalized domain property. May be selling sub-prime .com's might be well timed. I would hold on to prime .com's if I had some, though.
Good quality keyword and generic domains will probably hold their value. Most of the bubble .com domains will be dropped. The sheer number of dropped .com domains since 2000 is staggering. The same mistakes that were made then were made again during the last few years.
Somehow I think that search engine algorithm developments may put the value of geo-domains of the location[profession/service].com type in danger over the next year or so. Single city name type domains are probably long gone so this could almost be a type of bubble craze if they weren't so useful. However their value is based on search engine algorithms and type-in traffic. These are two of the most fickle traffic sources around.
