I am writing to express my support for the proposed new EOI process and to ask ICANN to implement it as a definitive step toward getting the new round of TLD's off the ground. There is great interest and support among leaders and business owners in my city (Ventura, CA) to gain a TLD (.ventura) which will represent and define our unique community online. ICANN should not enable AT&T and other corporate interests to hold up the new round in a misguided, short-sighted attempt to exert control by forestalling progress and limiting freedom.
Please do the right thing and get this process moving. Thank you. Eric Clawson Future Applicant Ventura, CA
