  1. 70k? they barely have over 60k…. are they counting their own reserved domains?!?!

  2. is there a way to monitor .london dropping domains? would love to see the quality of names and perhaps grab a few.

  3. It is a pretty good extension, given the real estate prices in london and the number of businesses if there are decent names the local businesses will want them. I guess another place similar is .nyc.

  4. So I just did a simple site search on Google for .nyc, and it shows that Spencer here is way way off, and DK is way way right. Nothing but page after page after page of “huge adoption” of .nyc in the numerous pages I sampled; all developed and published end user sites apparently, and I did not see even a single parking page in the search results among the numerous pages I looked at.
