this is way Japanese learn to use IDNs

Found this message on a yahoo blog. It isn't any more than a single blog entry from one guy to fellow rugby fans but when you think about it, this is actually significant for us. 1. It is validation of the IDN value proposition 2. It demonstrates how knowledge and usage of IDNs will spread (is starting to spread) by word of mouth in Japan. The big brands are only a few months away.

The only thing that is missing it the fuse.

Come on. Hurry up Microsoft!

Dude. Not that weird. It's just a school league rugby team. It isn't an investment opportunity.

Yes, it is the fact that these guys clearly know nothing of domaining that makes it signficant. These are ordinary Japanese doing what comes naturally. At this stage, one registration of this kind is more significant than 100 speculators!

Maybe we are all wrong and .net is the big winner! That wouldn't be so bad for me but it would be a surprise. But seriously it is hard to tell - he may have done it because he saw an ad for .net or it may have been a pricing decision or he may have assumed that the .jp / .com was taken. It's impossible to say.

Well, he's right so long as the browser is IE7 or Firefox. If it is IE6 ... ERROR. Shall we presume he doesn't know IE6 users won't be able to type the name in?

Really genius, why not? A blogger is totally an end user in my opinion.

Re: this is way Japanese learn to use IDNs

I think unlike the other contenders Dot Net has already been fairly heavily hammered. It is unlikely that many dot Biz will be registered where the dot net is still available.

Agree with that, but pretty sure there are a bunch of nice .nets for the taking.

i'd like to think we're a little more rational than to landrush based on one random post re one random blogger about a random idn that happens to be a .net

!! LANDRUSH !!
