I was looking into getting a new domain for a new site tonight and there's almost nothing available for .com (and many of the others anyway). They're either used by existing sites or, in many cases, held captive by domain pirates (ok, perhaps that's not the technical term...).
That's all, I guess. Just frustrating!
But a question: what's next? In 10 years, .com will be dead because it won't be current. Is there a next step? Will domains still exist? What will be the next directory of the internet?
