Here are a few things I’m thinking about while enjoying a beautiful November weekend in Austin.
It amuses me that many rival new top level domain name companies blast .XYZ for giving domain names away for free, but they still quote a three million top line for domain names registered across all TLDs. You can’t have it both ways!
If you’re coming to Austin in March for SXSW, hurry up and book your hotel room. If you have a bunch of people coming, you might want to try HomeAway to find a close-by home. It’s probably more economical. Right now I see two downtown hotels with availability; the La Quinta at $582 per night and the AT&T Center at $606. If you wait until the last minute (e.g., already), you’ll pay even more for your room. Right, Tessa?
This Monday’s Domain Name Wire Podcast will be very informative. Simon Cousins is going to give you a crash course on the Chinese domain name market. There’s a big opportunity in the Chinese domain name market right now. Check in Monday morning, or subscribe on iTunes.
