If it were up to me, and I had $500K to spend, I would spend it on the 
search engine rather than on a TLD.  Normal people actually use search 
engines.  And I wouldn't have to wait for ICANN -- I could do it right 

You also might want to spend some of it on a project to help city agencies 
fix up their web sites to make them more consistent and easier to 
navigate.  Again, you can do that right now.
