   New.net offers a chance for people to get extensions besides .com. Most of us on the board (particularly those waiting for .web) have been waiting for this for more than five years now. Given ICANN's snail pace, it will take another 10 years for ICANN to sucessfully introduce one decent tld. I think new.net will succeed because it is a pioneer in the domain names market essentially going where ICANN has never gone before. It has also been successful in providing a large segmanet of the internet access to its names.

If new.net doesn't succeed and ICANN mantains its iron grip over the internet, we are in for one very very long wait.
