If you don't always want to be complaining that you missed this and you missed that, maybe it is time to be EARLY this time around. Your choice. You can be late again if you CHOOSE!
A brief and incomplete history of a few big ideas in the last few thousand years that WON over other ideas in the evolution of our species and how we think as human beings...
To be the BIG IDEA you must BEST the big idea. Not simply alter it. Not simply copy it and call it better or the same. Not simply compete with it, though you can surely compete and make money or gain users/adopters...you cannot play small and WIN when you are up against the BIG IDEA.
English became a better alternative than Latin, why? America became more influential than the British Empire, why? Capitalism was a more perfect IDEA in the timing of history than the Soviet Communism...why?
If you can't ask the tough questions, you deserve what lazy thinking gets you. A great idea is never one man's!
Buy Domain.cn and the registrar Wins, You on the other hand will have THREE possible paths:

Just two men's opinion, folks.
Sometimes Rick's right.
.com is about to hit a grand slam AND pitch an almost no-hitter in the next 3 years.
You think you've seen a secondary market for dot com now? Ha! Wait til the $25,000,000 cash deals and for others besides Rick Schwartz to lease a domain for more than $1,000,000 per year.
Those kinds of deals are coming.
