ICANN's gTLD application system back on line

Yesterday ICANN put its gTLD application portal back up, after taking it down on April 12 due to a security hole.  The system reportedly already holds 2091 applications with an additional 214 registered applicants that haven't submitted anything yet.

I'm guessing that we'll see "unveiling day," when ICANN publishes the list of who applied for what strings, about a month from today.  That will be a super interesting moment in the internet's history, and I for one will be glued to my monitor while I check out who applied for what.
