<nettime> What do you think about .art?


There is a limited opportunity to apply for dotART domain name by April 12.

Is there any inking of support ? Or do people think that no artist
would like to have a .art domain?

dotArt(s), in plural though, has been proposed once in 1997 before
ICANN was set up the process for adding TLDs

The entity applying for it should have at least 185,000 USD for the
application fee
and some money raised for operating the registry for 3-5 years.

There might be many applicants and I would hate to see .art go into the wrong
hands (the ones with deepest pockets that would win it in the auction phase).

Is anyone here interested in making a pledge for the cause?
