I would have thought that if NSI applied to be a registrar and won the
lottery, they would be a 900 pound gorilla compared to the 2-3 man
operations currently gearing up to be registrars.  If I was management I
would see golden opportunities by having a bunch more gTLDs open up and
operations ready to handle 100,000 applications in a week.  Even if I lost
- I could become an outsourcer for those that win - providing technical
consulting and backoffice operations support.  If I was a stock holder
with SIAC I would be quite annoyed by now by their company losing out on a
potential golden egg that they have a leg up on.
