I like the .me extension. I own 1/3 interest in some of the best .me's (Date.me, marry.me, and love.me) and was 1/3 partner in the sale of Meet.me.
But the problem with .me is that you can not just stick any word in front of it and expect value. It is SCREAMING for a VERB but at least a NOUN! But verbs are action and that is what .me needs. Action! Or a personal nam that has limited value in many cases. Once you get out of that realm, there are few naturals and naturals are what any .whatever is going to be about.
Right now Cax.com is running an auction of over 800 .me domains. probably the largest auction of .me's I have ever seen. But after a week or more, only 3 have bids. They are all VERBS! And only one of the three has commercial value in my book and that could be limited.
So here is a real world example of the headwinds to come with .whatever and a little look inside of the elements that are missing in many of the gtld's. And if those things are missing that means fewer people use them. Fewer people advertise them and fewer people know of them. Some gtld's are so limited that their hopes of selling enough to support themselves is also limited and may be a complete challenge. They throw around these big numbers and I sit here and wonder how they made that leap. They ain't sold shit yet and they are in the millions and hundreds of thousands. The first 1000 may be more challenging than they ever expected. And some will smother their own extensions by hoarding the best keywords. Sex.mobi is still owned by .mobi. It probably could have garnered $500k if they sold it when the iron was hot. How much is sex.mobi worth today?
I use actual past events to support my position. Those events hold the answers to those events yet to unfold because those that walk the same path are likely to end up in the same place. Or same ditch.
