Yep - fantastic exposure in a major publication. Awareness of IDNs will grow a hundred fold in the next year.

The concern is that everyone focuses on IDN.IDN, and little ol' IDN.com is forgotten. Just playing devil's advocate of course :p

It is difficult for American Domainers to forget dot com when they talk to one another. They walk around with it stamped on their foreheads!

Re: What's the Hindi Word for Dot-Com?

.com in hindi is .कॉम . .com has a strong resonance in India.

What a catchy title in WSJ! I think folks here just need to sit back and relax now.

Re: What's the Hindi Word for Dot-Com?

Wall St. Journal is probably the most respected source of business news in the US.
It is read by virtually every major business executive in the US. Nice to see this story get out there.
We should keep the writers email handy to help keep him informed as a group.
Maybe it's time to consider forming an association? Much more clout and credibility in that fashion.

Re: What's the Hindi Word for Dot-Com?

I think we can leave the publicity building to ICANN. They have much more powerful media connection than we have.

If you want to know where we are up to publicity wise then I would suggest we are about at "Caught in a landslide, No escape from reality". Sit back and let the music sweep over you.

Re: What's the Hindi Word for Dot-Com?

Several members been previously involved in the 'spreading idn' to the world efforts, some more then others that gave alot of they're time and sometimes money for that purpose.

i also feel it is time to get things organized and worry less of what the precise unknown outcome will be or how many people in oklahoma or east la "get it" as really any of the options i could think of isn't 'killing' idn's...at all.

i will be happy if needed to help in anyway i can, and i feel that even by taking all idn.com domains in all major languages and see that each language points to something even as simple as a wiki page with a place for users to ask questions (blog like maybe) should generate some journalistic interest with the list of all those IDN.COM each catering a different language.

i would assume most major languages idn.com domains are help by members here?

Anyways, not sure if the above make sense...but the time to get organized i feel is here and with the talent this forum holds there is no reason not to.

Re: What's the Hindi Word for Dot-Com?

This is getting the message across ICANN style. Can we really compete with that?

Re: What's the Hindi Word for Dot-Com?

Most interesting development is Journalist are being invited to join a registry which means that ICANN can just pump all the info to them by email. That suggest ICANN intend to make a lot more press releases in the near future and are serious about getting the message across. Even Twomney is making a serious effort to get his facts straight!

Re: What's the Hindi Word for Dot-Com?

I believe you are correct & awareness is what is generally needed for all markets.
We need normal use of IDNs..

Giant has tons of major chinese terms. We got lots of Arabic, Japanese (especially .jp) and Russian as well.

I think we don't hold much of latins and maybe Korean.

My own portfolio is quite diversified, latins, japanese, chinese, korean, russian, and arabics. I got major terms across the languages.
