                  The issue here is whether Image Online Design (IOD) deserve to be considered in the greater scheme of things. The reality is that IOD have placed a great deal of time and effort into this for many years. This is significant as many people are very apt at having views on topics.... how many of us actually take our opinion forward to actions?

The .web Tld is significant as it allows a new area for developing names that have relevance to online business/activities. The concept is sound and there is no doubt that it will work.

We should try as an online community to avoid the current situation that the current crop of Tld's have - namely the monopoly that really is anything but healthy - especially as the last 2 years have seen a significant shift to a direct marketing model that has alienated the internet community professionals. Domain supply and resale has turned into a very crewd industry that begs some clear cut alternative.

In my opinion IOD can be the catalyst for such a change.
