    Ah yes but being a techie, I'd have to consider the many worlds interpretation in Physics. Having the site on .org is probably best though.

    When the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers decided to expand the domain landscape -- letting brands and anyone else with the money apply for the rights to own and run .anything -- it did so to create competition in a world of expanding demand.
    And competition is what it's getting. That's clear now that ICANN has revealed who's going after what domain extensions and where there are competing applications.
    The basics, according to ICANN and some data crunching from Melbourne IT Digital Brand Services:
    1,409 unique domain names applied for
    116 are Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs), meaning they use non-Latin script
    230 domain names have more than one applicant vying for the same name
    13 applicants for .app
    10 applicants for .art
    11 applicants for .home
    3 applicants for .sucks
    Microsoft is applying for 11
    Twitter and Facebook are applying for zero.

    The big collision among the applicants: Amazon vs. Google. Google is going after 101 new domain extensions -- not just names like .Youtube, but odd ones like .Dog. And Amazon is going after 76.

    More details here.
    As a general rule the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information.
