Re: <nettime> What do you think about .art?

I don't think the domain name system is the place to be fighting for 
the small, independent artist. Leave it to go to the enormous 
corporations, and create stuff whereever; in the cracks, the unseen 
places, darknets etc, as well as wherever in the public. Names are 
as valuable as what they represent.

I don't think a co-operative controlling and charging for particular 
domain names is a very good system of artist funding.
