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

I absolutely agree. .art is simply ridiculous, who wants to be called .art?
Only those who are "trying hard", or amateurs without real passion.  From
the other side, .art is a perfect package for a meta-conceptual artist to
acquire and do yet another one of those pseudo-dada art operations. In
either case, its totally uninterested and better to be left to the regular

Ps: I also believe that the "classic"- and "realistic"- domainname
extension for art, is simply .Com
