Just 2 days ago, ICANN announced that they are starting technical and commercial negotiations with the applicants behind the plans for .post and .travel domains.

Do we need these domains? I personally don't think so. Since 7 new top level domains were released 3 years ago (.info, .biz, .name, .pro, .aero, .coop, .museum) only .biz, .info and .name have received some interest from the general audience. Do you know any websites with a .pro, .aero, .coop or .museum domain name? I don't see why .post and .travel will do any better than previous niche domains. The idea behind them might be good, but training the average surfer to adopt them is very hard.
