I am just boarding the plane here in Seattle for the red-eye flight into NYC to attend DomainFest on Wednesday. Looking forward to a great event. If you are there and want to talk about domain development, drop me a note at email@example.com. Looking forward to a fun conference. Epik is sponsoring.
Update on August 19.
Just back from DomainFest. Oversee-Moniker did a great job putting together a 1 day event which was widely attended and sold a number of significant domain assets.
Jeff Kupietzky, CEO of Oversee, delivered an excellent opening address on the 5 Myths of Domain Investing. It will eventually be posted for public view, in which case I would recommend giving it a look. The auction also went off without a hitch.
The only downsides of the event were (1) the Grand Hyatt had a complete lack of suitable open areas for peer networking which created for a lot of a standup meetings, and (2) the mid-afternoon breakout meetings could not possibly have been too fruitful for the folks that participated in these Mosh Pits inside of a jam-packed ballroom!
Otherwise, it was a great, sold-out event, with a large number of new participants to the industry. It is a tribute to the Oversee folks to see their commitment to hosting regular events that are cost-effective, informative, and well-attended.
