    Hello Everyone,

    Today I posted an article on domainer.com.au that highlights some statistical facts taken from various high profile market reports. Its not an in depth analysis but a simple snap shot of the Australian market and its relationship to the DNS.
    I hope you get a chance to read it and comment; A big thanks to Ned for the encouragement and opportunity to publish it on his site.

    Yeah flooding the space with more parked pages isn't going to improve the DNS . Take for example, our economy is about digging holes and growing sheep yet Google the word wool or mining and you see .com dominates...??? Admittedly, those industries are selling to a global audience but notice the .com.au for wool and mining are dead.

    I suspect there will be problems down the road for small/micro businesses who don't know what to choose between a .com.au and .au and end out choosing a .au. If the business does ok for them they are going to find someone else on the .com.au (for traffic). The .au isn't likely to pass the radio test well.

    Or worse a small business develops the .au choice and the .com.au owner simply mirrors it's success.

    It's not a clearly definablle extension....if .Aussie were released we probably wouldn't care.
