site<http://gtld-similarity.info>. This sort of data helps dramatically reduce 
time and expense for the evaluation of new gTLD applications while increasing 
quality. The principle is simple: find the similarities between the 1930 
It is a proof-of-concept project by Arnoldo Mueller-Molina, a young Costa Rican
