More and more outlets are covering the new tld space. News sites that don't specialize in domaining have been weighing in. Content marketing firms have been focusing on them too.
ADI News did an article yesterday if the new tlds will fail ? From the article: Without the 100% support of the already established domain registration companies, it is unlikely that the new gTLD’s will succeed without massive amounts of marketing dollars. It may also be too iffy for new registrars to throw money at the potential money pit of the new gTLDs.
Demand Force in partnership with Column Five put out this nice infographic which is a visualization of the new tld landscape, I think for anyone who consults or has clients not sure they even understand the new tlds, that this is a nice piece to forward them.
