As much as my wife and I enjoyed a great 4 day weekend on the beach with some close friends, we are now excitedly looking forward to the TRAFFIC conference in Amsterdam, which begins a week from this past Monday. As luck would have it, the family of one of my closest friends is originally from Holland, and they were able to make some day trip recommendations outside of Amsterdam.
I am most excited to meet some European colleagues in a business and casual setting. TRAFFIC always provides a great business setting for deal making and networking during the day, and then fun casual networking opportunities in the evening. If you haven’t already locked in your tickets, think about going. Everything I hear about Amsterdam is positive, and the conference will be a great opportunity for networking.
I also saw that a partial list of auction domain names was released yesterday, and I was surprised to see some .cm domain names listed – great generic ones at that. I haven’t looked into renewal fees or ownership requirements for .cm yet, but Vegas.cm with just a $1,000 reserve price is my favorite so far.
I am looking forward to meeting new friends and colleagues in less than a week.
If you are going to be there on Sunday, I’m taking a select group of people on a tour.
Wish I could make it, but I land at 6:15am on Tuesday. I am sure there might be a few others that would be interested.
The generic .CM’s are key. I don’t think the average domainer realizes how much traffic those get.
As I mentioned before here on your board. I am looking forward to meet you (and many others) in Amsterdam. Me and my wife will be getting there since Saturday the 30th. (Flying out of MEX on Friday night).
