I doubt that very much !

What has to be appreciated is that although DATA IN THE DNS is a clever idea USERS SIMPLY DON'T CARE where the data is held - they only care about the service they receive being what they want (or can be persuaded to desire) at a price they find attractive.

The value of the Data In The DNS idea (and the patents if they stop anyone else doing the same) is in how the concept attracts system developers to exploit the idea and create AUTOMATED SOFTWARE SERVICES.

But in nearly 5 years this hasn't happened at all - nada - zilch - nothing - so where's the value in patents that protect a concept that no-one is interested in developing for ?

.GURU is over 35,000 registrations today and we now have what may very well be the very first .GURU Auction at SEDO:

http://sedo.com/auction/index.php?language=e&auction_id=169375

Will be interesting to see how it fairs, but even meeting the reserve at $500 USD it's done well already!

Looking good for the Yoga.guru auction - 3 bids now and still 4 Days 10 Hours to go.

I wonder what the last .tel sold at Sedo went for, and how long ago this was ?

Looking at that, it looks like someone bought one from themselves almost 4 years ago, to make it look like a somewhat big sale.

www.e-e.tel Jun-2010 €1360 Sedo.com

This appears to be the last lame attempt at "tel demand" ...

... and it sits unused.

Maybe try gu-ru.guru at $2,999USD or even uuu.guru at £100GBP for something new.

There are plenty of new ones for sale at Sedo.

Out of curiosity I just checked http://uk.godaddy.com and the following .GURU domains are available for registration at GoDaddy:

Tel.guru - reg price 251.99 GBP

DotTel.guru - reg price 25.99 GBP

So for less than £26 you can be known as a DotTel guru - anyone going to admit they are one and register it ?

Impressive sale so early in the new gTLD era.

.GURU is still the winner so far, pushing the 40,000 registrations mark.

.GURU has broken the 40,000 mark.

Hard to believe a gtld extension that starts off with at least 11 in length is coming up the charts (.PHOTOGRAPHY).

So much for the "short" value of a domain name!

Interesting occurence in the tld stats.

Old tld's showing net losses versus ntlds showing net gains.
