re: New Domain Names: What To Expect
New generic top level domains (gTLDs) will be of use to those who haven't so far been able to register their chosen name because it has already been registered by another party. Until now, getting your chosen domain name has been a struggle.

Additionally, it should help businesses (and individuals) by giving them a chance 'belong' to a certain namespace and thus they will be found more easily when appropriate search methods are used. For example, all architects who are able to register 'theirname.architect' will increase their chances of being found by people specifically wanting an architecture service.

It's about time the namespace was given the chance to expand with our ever growing population and requirements.

How's dot eat for a new top-level domain sound? I'm sure nobody thought of that. Can you imagine Mcdonald's.eat? Sounds yummy. I wonder if I can sell it for also $185,000.

re: New Domain Names: What To Expect
Given the global nature of the Internet, it's mind-boggling to think about the juggling act involved in ensuring no new tld name is offensive to any group. Since ICANN, when you come right down to it, lacks judicial standing, what happens if a dispute arises over these names? The legalities are hazy. I can see SCOTUS having a field day.
