Subject: good luck to you - how long does the free listing offer last?

I am excited by what has happened at this forum in the last day or two.  I feel we are participants in a wonderful chapter of the story of the internet - a chapter which does include some tragedies such as the ICANN "management" of the DNS as evidenced by the events of the .info and then .biz launches - but a chapter none the less that will see a new extension made popular and changes to the way people look for info and use SEs.

Despite the fact that Afilias - the 18 registrars - made a killing with the Sunrise registration of 10,000 Landrush 1 names for which they had spent months selling Landrush 1 preregistrations - they seem to have lost interest in advertising their product - may be saving their advertising budget for another Bono bash.

As it is apparent that neither ICANN nor the registries will fulfill their promises - we will have to do the establishment on .info ourselves.

The very best of luck to all the pioneers - heaven knows we deserve a some luck having been through what we have with the .info and .biz launches.
