Re: An alternative
" ....we would need to get a new domain protocol defined, deployed and widely accepted before you could loosen the grip of the gTLDs....."
DONE THAT !!!
I've got an ENTIRE IP (Internetworking Protocol) protocol taking into account BOTH legacy and new high-end, high-speed and low-speed ALWAYS ENCRYPTED text and voice messaging, email, file transfer, realtime and time-delayed streamed audio/video/metadata communications for smartwatches, tablets, embedded devices, IOT, desktop, servers, supercomputing, LAN/WAN, machine control, robotics, autonomous systems, security systems, networks, groups of networks and interspace/interestellar communications!
I've even got a OPEN SOURCE FULLY FREE lower-power-consumption combined-CPU/GPU/DSP/BASEBAND/SecureDNS/CRYPTO ASIC DESIGN for it all IN ONE SINGLE CHIP !!!
AND I am more than willing to GIVE IT ALL AWAY FOR FREE !!!!
