Four domain name panels on the ballot for SXSW
Monday, August 27th, 2012
Topics range from new TLDs to government interference.
SXSW 2013 is more than six months away, but there are just a few days left to vote for which panels you want to see. The SXSW Panel Picker closes August 31.
I discovered four domain name related panels in the panel picker. Here they are, along with a link to their full description.
New Domains Have Landed – Now What!?
Speaker: Jeremiah Johnston, Sedo
Jeremiah Johnston gave a “Future 15″ presentation on new TLDs this year. Now that the applications have been submitted he hopes to return this year with an update.
.JOBS, The SEO Hotshot: Multiple Domain Recruiting
Speaker: Nancy Holland DirectEmployers Association
DirectEmployers Association is trying to pimp the .jobs domain name with its own session at SXSW. It looks more like a sales pitch than an education session, and it isn’t the type of session that usually makes the final cut at SXSW.
Protect Digital Assets Against Government Seizure
Speakers: Charles Mudd Mudd Law Offices, David Snead David S. Snead, Julie Samuels Electronic Frontier Foundation
A discussion about government domain name seizures, who’s at risk of having it happen, and how it occurs.
How You Will Get Hacked Ten Years From Now
Speaker: Alex Stamos, Artemis
Artemis is an applicant for the .secure domain name. It wants to talk about how the release of hundreds of new top level domain names will lead to increased threats of fraud, spam, and malware — making it easier for you to get hacked. This could be good as long as they don’t pitch their .secure bid.
Quick update: I also see that Flippa is pitching a panel “How to Buy & Sell Websites For a Profit”
