geek.nz approved in interim decision

Topic: Country-Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs)

dpf writes "Following a bottom up market led approach to deciding on the creation of new 2LDs in .nz, the Council of InternetNZ (http://www.internetnz.net.nz) has voted unanimously to create geek.nz as the 12th 2LD in the .nz TLD."

"The proposal to create geek.nz had received strong backing from many in the internet community and after a community discussion period, a straw poll had 956 votes in favour and 103 against. The formal submission period also showed no significant opposition, so it was no surprise that InternetNZ Council approved the application.

The decision is an interim one, with a final Council vote to be taken on 4 July 2003. Submissions on the interim decision and on implementation details are welcome in the next month and can be sent to the Office of the Domain Name Commissioner."

I can understand the original gTLDs: com, net, org, edu, mil, gov. Each's purpose was very clear and it was obvious where every organization belonged. The original gTLDs were an order elegantly designed, obviously by real geeks, none of whom proposed a .geek gTLD. Ahhh, the good ole days.
