||My Response to Challenge's questions.....
>>What do you stand to gain on
a personal level other than your obvious contribution to humanity?<<<
don't look at it from the standpoint of what will I personally will gain when Image
Online Design's dot web registry is uploaded to the USG root. I look at it
as how will the name-space gain from Image Online Design's dot web registry being
in the legacy root.....I can tell you that when Image Online Design's dot web registry
is approved, you WILL see improved service from Network Solutions, Register.com,
etc, etc. The problem with the name-space right now is there is no other TLD
that competes against dot com. Having said that, those registries with the
bulk of the dot com names will rule the DNS.....That is why it is so important for
ICANN to approve Image Online Design's application in 2002...In keeping with the
spirit of the "White Paper"---that ICANN introduce real competition into the name-space....Think
about it in those terms, and it all makes sense...No sales pitch...just the facts..
many .WEB names do you currently own?<<<<
I own 32. Mostly related
to businesses I plan to start. My favorite: www.killer.web ---Plan to
build a "website-on-demand" service with it.
>>>>-Will you agree to
throwing those back into the pool for an equitable distribution process that benefits
the public at large?<<<<<
Please allow me to answer your question
with a question: Would you be willing to give up your dot info's (if you bought
any) to those people who don't know about dot info right now (about 99% of the internet
users), but may happen to pay a visit to Network Solutions in December and see the
extension for the first time??? Does that make sense???
Afilias' dot info
registry is a "proof-of-concept" approved by ICANN last year. Image Online
Design (see full explanation below) got the approval to do a "proof-of-concept" some
time ago and are just awaiting approval. So without question some of the "good"
names are taken. Not all by Americans either. The database is quite full
with Europeans, Asians, Latin Americans, South Americans etc.
