Looking at some of the past "none too fancy" winners I'd say it's a contest worth pursuing if a company has some unused development assets.

That's interesting, the majority are German sites.

.info's are popular in German speaking countries. In Austria for example there are almost as many .info's registered as .net's and .org's combined.

I'm not trying to beat your drum however it is logical, as the Germans etc would say, to use an extension which is already well-recognised in its foreshortened form in those countries.

I also found it very surprising that one of the sites had actually moved from their excellent keyworddomain.de to promoting preference for their .info whilst leaving .de in situ.

Thinking about it the reasoning is obvious but still one heck of a bold move but it seems to have paid off.
