Why I Am Going to NamesCon

I’ve been unsure about whether or not I would be able to make it to NamesCon. My wife and I have quite a bit of travel planned, and I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to get away to Las Vegas in January.

After meeting up with Braden Pollock and Steve Kaziyev (and their significant others) in New York City last month, my wife was convinced that I should go, and she convinced me that she would be fine at home with our toddler (now 20 months old) and our dog.

Braden Pollock to Moderate NamesCon Panels

With no sign of DomainFest aka WebFest, and with numerous other domain conference brands having been moth-balled, why would a veteran of the internet name space want to risk so much of his own capital to launch a brand new show? Wouldn’t you have to be crazy to enter this space?

To answer that question, I hope you will indulge me for a few paragraphs. My name is Richard Lau and I am that person….

I’m proud to announce NamesCon Las Vegas 2014 will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on
