A quote that is parallel to those that see a future in IDNs...

Sure, but he is rather closed minded about IDNs. Isn't he?

Let's hope he got that one wrong
In reality I think he understands and sees the need but doesn't want to publically stick his neck out since he's not
investing in IDNs himself. Besides, he is already making plenty of money in ascii, as well as running his conferences, etc.

Once you seize an opportunity, you do whatever you can to ensure that it keeps you on top for as long as possible. What will they do, though, when a lot of the foreign traffic stops arriving? I don't know if they even care right now.

Re: Secret .mobi fan spotted and revealed!

Foreign traffic won't stop arriving to ascii because of idn.

IDN will take care of local markets as well as bring fresh users to the space; all the ones who couldn't navigate the ascii namespace in the past.

If idn browsers hit market saturation point of 95% or more, it can well replace asciis for languages like chinese, korean, japanese and arabic.

Webmasters may not even bother to register ascii domains for new sites.

Some existing websites using numeric or badly formed ascii transliteration addresses will be dumped when webmasters switch to idn.

Saturation may take sometime, maybe 4-5 years, but it can be quicker if microsoft makes ie7 compulsory for the next xp service pack.

No, we are talking about e.g. Russian type-in traffic to porno.com sharply dropping off because people will be typing in порно.com or "kom" instead, once they figure out that it has a website on it.

I do respect the opinions of others, but I also very strongly believe that this will happen.

Definitely, but still some way to go, won't happen so quickly. This is like global warming, happens a little at a time.

You really do have a hypothesis for every occasion. You are of course totally wrong. When this happens, if it happens, it will happen all at once.

Yes, maybe he is going to flog it to this 01-800-Flowers Guy for some implausibly large amount of money! :p

Isn't yours a hypothesis as well?


As for the other comments re: porno etc., my question is: the Russian guy who knows how to get to porno dot com now, once he finds out about порно dot com, why would he stop visiting the first site as well, if he finds what he's looking for?

Double the pleasure imho

Now the guy who can't spell ascii porno, couldn't go there in the first place, so there's no traffic loss to anyone. It's just new traffic to Cyrillic porno.

For most holders of ascii generics, foreign traffic (depending on the origin) is mostly a nuisance, since it brings down conversion rates , more so in the adult sector.

Re: Secret .mobi fan spotted and revealed!

Maybe, but it is a hypothesis that makes sense.

This will either happen or it won't, and it certainly won't happen in geological time.

Time is running out for IDN. If it is not moving forward in a serious manner in 12 months, most people are going to lose interest. Maybe they will just lose interest in the ICANN Root, but if you don't understand something has to give and give soon, then you don't understand anything.

Trush understands what I mean, otherwise he would not have flown from Delhi to Beijing to reassure the Chinese that Fast Track means exactly that.

This is why he flew there.

Time ain't running out for idn. It's getting there as it should. Slowly but surely.
Just like ascii did, in the course of the past 10 years or so.

No that has nothing to do with why he went to China. China does not need to be convinced that the US must rescind control of the Internet.

And you seem to forget that IDN has been on the move for Ten Years already!

Nope, it's only been moving in the last couple of years as traffic would suggest.

People can't buy a concept car. They need to wait for production.

No, but remember that Rick and Frank were getting serious traffic virtually out of the gate, which is why they were so sure they were on the right track.

Anyway, if you want to follow bullshit Gurus like Touchring. You go ahead. He has been enticing you all to buy Silver all week, but has clearly never heard of the Hunt's. If you want to back you investment decision with that kind of expertise, stay in your little ghetto and absorb all the bullshit that is going for all I care.

Nice to see you giving other opinions as much credit as you expect from yours.

Refreshing.
