".combat: A messy and expensive row is brewing over new suffixes for internet addresses". Article from this week's Economist. This is as mainstream as it gets I guess.

Interesting, I didn't know applicants could hire pool.com for digital archery for $25k per application. Pool.com guys are or were one of the top players in drop catching, right?

yes, they are advertising it on their start page. Verisign should have the best infrastructure though.

Big Reveal confirmed for London
Kevin Murphy, June 6, 2012, Domain Policy

ICANN will reveal details of the over 1,900 new top-level domain applications it has received during a press conference starting at noon UTC next Wednesday.

The event will be held at Kings Place, a venue in the King’s Cross area of London, at 1pm local time, June 13.

CEO Rod Beckstrom and senior vice president Kurt Pritz will speak at the event, which will be webcast live.

An ICANN spokesperson said that the Big Reveal itself will happen during the press conference — there’ll be a break for journalists to attempt to absorb as much information as they can before the Q&A begins.

I’m waiting for confirmation on whether the full public portions of the applications will be published at that time, or whether it will just be a list.

ICANN said it “will reveal which companies, organizations, start-ups, geographical regions and others have applied for gTLDs and which domain names they are seeking”.

Who cares? You want to see a fuck up? Put .gay in batch one and the Chinese transliterations of existing gTLDs in batch 2.

All this is more of a concern to new gTLD applicants as i truly see no way all applied for IDN Transliterations of existing gTLD's won't be in batch #1

I am guessing that depending on the amount of duplicate applications and how many will choose to wait for a later time and a couple other factors that may lead to ICANN bending the 500 per to nearly all in on one batch.

QUOTE: "With so many applicants using custom software to fire their arrows, millisecond differences will be hugely important."

Companies like pool.com are charging up to $25,000 to "fire" your arrows for you.

This whole rollout is heading towards being a huge clusterf*ck...and the lawsuits haven't even begun.

ICANN would have done more justiice to applicants if they used an old fashion "raffle drum" to hold a live draw for the first batch, second batch etc.

And it is uncertain if they can be used as a sharing of password is necessary and that is forbidden in the TAS rules (From DomainIncite).

"MarkMonitor also expressed concern that ICANN’s TLD Application System terms of use may prohibit applicants from using third-party archery services, such as those offered by Pool.com and Digital Archery Experts.

Sharing TAS passwords seems to be against the rules, but would be necessary to let a third party into your TAS account."

How else are they supposed to justify their salaries?

Of course it not difficult to see their strategy for complying with the requirements of a Not-For-Profit.

Word.

And it's not as if they can't AFFORD to process all the applications in one batch!

Don't know if anyone saw this icann/hitler parody video on domainincite.com when the TAS system first got botched
(seems this particular movie clip has been used for dozens of parodies on you tube, this being one of the latest) . Quite
a clever swipe at ICANN. If anyone is offended by this for any reason, PM me and I will remove this post and link.
