looming GTLD application bitchslap fights

So far the looming new GTLD bitchslap fights that I perceive on the InterWebs...


dot music
dot sports
dot bank/banks/

likely to fill ICANN's coffers via auctions.

But some interesting non-ANA bitchslapping or bar room dwarf tossing is approaching.

A friend in Auckland emailed me last night...

A bad rumor in NZ that some Aussies are applying for dot kiwi/kiwis.
( best settled on the rugby pitch...I would think...)


dot Koln group or city officials are pressuring a perfume association in France not to apply for dot cologne

British namesakes in the US with one or more city council meetings on the subject.

Lynn
Gloucester
Boston
Thames
Glasgow
Cardiff


No 30 syllable Welsh names on the docket yet...

Re: looming GTLD application bitchslap fights

Comparing based on a minimum of 60 articles from the last couple days, Around 35-40 had no mention of IDN's, the rest mentioned them, some gave them the attention they deserve when pointing out they are likely the biggest thing that will come out of the whole new gTLD process.

Also plenty of local coverage at least from Russia and some in Israel as well.

Also i saw the CNN coverage with no IDN mention, the one on Bloomberg has Beckstrom talking about idn's http://www.bloomberg.com/video/84059064/ and i also saw at least a couple of local TV coverage from Russia and Israel.

Also .gay and .eco ,but on .eco possibly Gorbachev gave up and left it to be Al Gore's problem.

It's the opposite, Al Gore left it for Gorbachev http://www.guardian.co.uk/environmen...oup-eco-domain

That's a 3 part plan then.

1)Perestroika of .eco
2)The fall of .eco
3)A good story of how Al Gore and Gorbachev planned it together.
