Guys and Girls,

As I have stated repeatedly before, advisers on domain space registration
have to understand their clients longer term strategies before wildly
recommending the most appropriate domain space!

The idea may best fit within the 'com.au' arena as that may well be the
longer term plan - a commercial business model actually supplying products
and services to expats.  If it is simply going to be an
information-introduction business model, then yes 'org or asn'.  If in doubt
at this stage on the likely outcome, register in all relevant spaces
including 'com' to provide longer term global flexibility.

Be it com.au or org.au or asn.au, if the theme is that good as a business
model, I am sure there are heaps of 'onshore' contacts that would gladly go
and register a business or company  for these interested 'offshore'
interested parties and act as a local representative.  Indeed, if a good
model, it would be smart of the originators of the idea to involve an
onshore party so as to assist with local sourcing and infrastructure detail.

(A freebie piece of advice - go chat with Dick Smith - he would relish the
opportunity to use Aussie expats to expand Aussie products amongst their
foreign communities)

This is no different to me wanting to set up a concept in (say) India.  It
would be smart for me to establish local links.  I would follow this path
with or without the Internet.

I wish people would take note of the all the 'dud' Internet deals falling
over and recognise that the emergence of the internet DOES NOT make for a
'business model'.  It may enhance the business, but if the basic
fundamentals are not in place, then it is a doomed idea.

Garbage is garbage irrespective of the degrees of smell!

Cheers, Kerry Henry
