IMO, it's way too expensive and not fair to gauge prices like that. also, i feel it's prejudiced against developers. not every developer has that kind of money laying around.

What should they do instead? If the domains launched at $12, you'd still be paying thousands for a good domain name, but you would be paying a reseller instead.

I'll be waiting to register a .dev at the general release on the 28th.

Yeah, it is definitely weighted toward businesses that have had at least some funding. A salaried chap like myself (and I'd guess many others) have no chance of getting in on the early round of sales. Heck, even the later sales close to the actual "release" are too pricey for me.

good point about businesses, didn't really think of that.
