Just heard all the news about the new TLD's that will be released. Does anyone know when they'll start selling them to the public? Is it going to be a free for all mass sale? Or is there going to be some kind of draw for the hottest domain names?

AFAIK, they will be sold through existing approved registrars. I expect them to ramp the price back up to $30-40 per domain (US) though. I don't believe they have said when they will be going on sale. It is suppose to be setup and running by mid 2001.
