Re: The next step is to internationalize .com. - Tina Dam

I was trying to find my favorite quote from that "other" forum. Even after being told 6 months ago that .com would become .IDN there was someone that said something along the lines of, "Great so I'll wait until these new .IDN come out." Still gives me a smile.

Reminds me of a discussion on a German domain forum last week. The only one interested in non-German IDNs was a guy who proudly stated that he's got a list of premium chinese names so he can reg them when .中国 becomes available. :D

Sad. She didn't happen to mention what year (or decade) to expect the .com version in IDN.

Re: The next step is to internationalize .com. - Tina Dam

Great video - though is it just me or does Richard Quest have one of the most annoying face and voice combinations on TV ?? He seems to be 90% mouth and teeth and the other 10% being his really annoying voice.

Did anyone else catch it when he called ICANN "icon" at 3:53 ??

I noticed, but at that time I was still wondering about his question at 2:50. Where are all the people who want to access all these Chinese or Arabic sites despite not being able to read Chinese or Arabic?

Probably better get more beer, that is unless RD has some more predictions/visions he'd like to share with us.

Re: The next step is to internationalize .com. - Tina Dam

Another Circle ID post this morning.

Quote:
Finally, speedy movement on IDNs for existing gTLDs must be on ICANN's short list of things to do. For while there is a great deal of understandable enthusiasm about new ccTLDs, the simple fact is that the cc's are only half of the equation. As I'm watching the USA-Tunisia match from Brussels (sadly), literally thousands of Tunisians will be tuning in to sites like SoccerArabia.net. But they won't be able to reach it using an IDN gTLD. Especially in diverse regions like the Arabic-speaking world, for the good of e-commerce, for the good of economic development and for the benefit of football fans, IDN gTLDs also need to be moved along as fast as possible

Haha, thanks Adam. But the kudos here should go to you for spotting the video so quickly.

Sadly because they follow the "Great Savants" that head-up the industry, they is exactly how most wannabee domainers see it.

GTLDs will not take beyond the middle of next year (2011) to start appearing in the root. Verisign will certainly have theirs by then. The policy will be set in stone somewhere in the third quarter of 2010. Implementation will take about another six months.

The party starts the moment are rights to the IDN.IDN version of our dot coms are confirmed. The problem at the moment is the perceived uncertainty. Anyone but an idiot can see where this is going. Unfortunately, the "industry" is mostly comprised of idiots, so nobody can see anything.

Re: The next step is to internationalize .com. - Tina Dam

one thing that struck me in a recent post by ryu was his story of a woman unwilling to buy idn because there isn't full email capability idn@idn.com etc. THAT is the real app killer. until that's sorted idn will still be an add on

Frankly, I very much doubt that. Most western site have a very limited repetoire before the @. It is usually sales or info or something else equally as bland. I very much doubt the Japanese are much more imaginative. If it is memorable, it is not much of an issue. The critical issue is what goes after the @ and before the dot, and what people regard as worthwhile extensions. The really critical issue is whether the wider populous understand that IDN actually function.
