Internet Real Estate, Art and Power: The cases of Artsy and .art

Personally a corporation\organisation which publicly states ...

"e-flux has applied for the rights to develop and administer the .art domain, with the hopes of maintaining and distributing such a domain in a way that emphasizes the quality, content, and educational and ethical values of the art community" []

... sounds a lot more like a curator than a gatekeeper.

1. Quality - If they don't think your art is any good ...
2. Content - Goes far beyond the 'What is art?' question.
3. Educational - Policing misinformation would not be a bad thing.
4. Ethical - what about art that challenges a taboo.
