The whole new gTLD roadshow is an enormous, baffling, confused and messy situation. But it is also one that will have repercussions for every single one of you reading this article online. That’s why next week in San Francisco my company, .Nxt, is running a conference all about it. For three days we will try to make sense of the situation using those closest to the program answering questions from those trying hardest to make sense of it. You are most welcome to come and join in."

poised
1.
(of a person) composed, dignified, and self-assured.
2.
being in balance or equilibrium: a balloon poised on the nose of a seal.
3.
teetering or wavering: to be poised on the brink of disaster.
4.
hovering or suspended in or as in midair: a bird poised in flight; a helicopter poised overhead.

They;ll have to stop tip-toeing around, in order to wake the giant up.

Tip: Look at what .ws is doing, and follow suit.

And the first question everyone is going to ask this arsehole is "What is Dot Com in Chinese?"

And of course he won't have a clue what they are on about!
