"MountRushmore.com
MountRushmore.info
MountRushmore.web
The .net and .org versions will become comparatively worthless, as time goes by."

Net is more valuable than web.  Net means internet.  Web is usually associated with spiders, despite the term worldwideweb.

Org means organization, usually nonprofit.  Most people trust nonprofits more than forprofits.

Most folks will trust MountRushmore.org more than MountRushmore.com or MountRushmore.web or even MountRushmore.info website.

Unfortunately, the dot-info TLD will be overly commercialized.  For example: dell.info redirects to dell.com computer sales website.

Folks don't expect dot-info sites to never sell items, but they also don't expect dot-info sites to bombard them with hardsells either.  But that will happen.
