I think '.com' will always carry a certain cachet. It's like a telephone phone number ending in '000.' It might belong to some guy running a business out of an unheated basement, but the phone number tends to make us think it belongs to a business 'of substance.'
>"dotcom" as an everyday word No doubt about it, we've had dotcom drubbed into our subconsciousness (a fact which I bank on daily). But what about efforts like RealNames? Though somewhat pathetic now, there was a time....
Another factor that's hard to gauge right now is, at the rate the existing "big gun dotcoms" are dropping, there may soon be a glut of real, desirable .com names available and the new .whatevers may not be much in demand for a long time to come...
