I do not think this is enough.  It is not a matter of the 3.  It is a matter of 
"Complex Systems".  In a natural business cycling sense we should see more 
failure. A system that is truly open and free should see more risk and more 
loss. On the one hand this minimal closure rate indicates not enough trying. 
Therefore not enough incentive to risk the cost of participation. OTOH it 
indicates a lack of competitiveness involving winners and losers.
How many tries for the lightbulb?  What was each try?  We cannot possibly be 
trying hard enough to find the best business models if we are not in the 
process of eliminating those that do not work.
I was very heartened to read of the Press Release regarding the Twin Cities 
Sero grand predictions for a fairly new concept .Artist which will at least 
strive to be a community networking inter and intra community networking 
concept.  I was likewise very pleased to see some momentum going for .gay. I 
was quite bummed out to see both of them fall prey to fairly typical "Press 
Release" for an "offereing" stylized announcements and suggesting rather 
typical business models.  They seem to stand out in concept but are rather dull 
in inventiveness for people to invest of themselves into the origin of the 
When I am so blessed to be able to teach marketing and business in rather 
socialist -Mexico and rather communist-Vietnam the first lessons that I pound 
into the skulls of mush is the Right to Fail. ICANN is not promoting this 
concept. They somehow tie in the concept of "failure of the system" which is 
quite a bogeyman in engineering, to the business model where the right to fail 
is paramount to invention, innovation, synergy and evolution of our kind.
Everyday I scan my Spam for the failures. I read a few and then I pause and try 
to think what I could learn from each one -- what not to do - what fire not to 
stick my hand in - and then I give thanks for those who try.
