<nettime> What do you think about .art?


Hi

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
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IAHC#Proposed_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?

A little bit about myself:
