Re: The Only Certainty is Change

I've read it twice now, the first time there had been no approved comments and I thought Frank was wrong, well not wrong but off. Today I read the article again with Moshe's comments and I can't help to think that Frank's personal experience - his life experiences whatever- really shaped his view of the world in a much different way that mine.

I do not believe that non-english strings will be very strong
Factually such a comment is odd given that the single most successful TLD launch in the past few yeas was an IDN TLD. Of course perhaps english new gTLDs will eclipse that twentyfold, but as of right now, I don't understand how one can come to this conclusion.

I understand Frank's position that english is the language that has the best shot at being successful in foreign markets, and thus having an international appeal. So yes abc.cars probabilistically has better reselling prospects than abc.voitures (car in french). Perhaps his analysis stopped there and didn't consider aliased version of existing gTLDs like .com, I don't know.

I could not agree more.. He is a very good promoter/businesman but when I read 'Weimar-Germany.... all lived beyond their means' I almost fell of the chair. Fortunately for him, his clientele probably is of the same history literacy level
I agree with him though in his analysis of .com future. This actually can be extrapolated to idn domains

Frank's point is that, just like brands drove .com to acceptance, brands will bring .newGTLDs to the limelight. I think the comparison is off because back then, people saw ibm.com and they wanted something similar so they got a .com. Now, people will see viagra.pfizer or m3.bmw but they (hypothetically) won't be able to register .pfizer and .bmw names. Well then, will people go and register .drugs and .cars domains ? Not sure.

My teen brothers, when they see a celebrity the like sporting new clothes or a new hairdo, they don't perceive the underlying message that everything is possible and that they can be whatever they want to be, no, they just want that same exact hairdo or the same exact clothes down to the brand and color.

Right. (Weimar Germany = same thing for Zimbabwe, nobody there lived beyond their means except a handful of people). I like Frank for his candor but really I don't think his analysis was very well researched, or at least not explained extensively enough.

No ? I always assume that M is you. Wherever I see comments, on DNW or domainincite, if it's signed M I always assume it's you.

Didn't get it at all.

Just put it down to a domainer talking his book.
