To expand on that point somewhat.  Not only is .web a wonderful alternative to .com, perhaps more importantly, Image Online Design is a wonderful alternative to the recent corporate ignorance we have seen run rampant with .info and .biz.

To summarize where we are now:  ICANN chose possibly the worst seven TLD's from a host of much better alternatives, and then assigned the best two of the seven to some weird, ill-concieved corporate entities that apparantly have absolutely no clue of the concepts surrounding a viable registry.  I would love to be a fly on the wall in the corrupt back rooms of ICANN, when they are trying to figure out some excuse for not approving IOD's .web application again.

I know.  IOD is an acronym, and any company that goes by an acronym is bound to have problems.  That is the excuse they could use!  Sound silly to you?  You should read ICANN's response to IOD's .web application during the first round.  ICANN's excuses weren't any better then.

sigh
