If you live in the US, I hope you had a great July 4th holiday. If you live elsewhere in the world, I hope you had a great July 4th.
Here are some thoughts and updates I want to share with you. If you have domain industry (or other) updates you think others might be interested in reading, I invite you to share those in the comment section. Enjoy the rest of the day!
The Boston domain investor meetup is scheduled for a week from Wednesday (July 15). I think there will be a nice crowd. If you haven’t reserved a spot and want to attend, please let me know ASAP. Sedo is sponsoring the meetup.
On this coming Wednesday (July 8), there is a meetup at Wrigley Field for the Chicago Cubs game against the St. Louis Cardinals sponsored by Rook Media / Domain Sponsor. There are now 4 tickets available due to a few people being unable to make it. If you want to attend, let me know ASAP and I will put you in touch with Joe (or contact your account manager directly).
Last night, I saw a television commercial for a restaurant that uses LobsterRolls.com for its website despite having a different brand name. The restaurant is know for its lobster rolls though. Interestingly, it looks like Andrew Rosener’s Media Options owned the domain name back in 2010. I don’t see a public sale record on Namebio, so it was likely a private transaction.
Can’t touch this… MCHammer.com expired recently. I wouldn’t touch the name.
>My article with opinions on the impact of the Chinese stock market on domain values was quite popular. If you have other topics you’d like to read about with opinions from brokers, let me know and I will try to put something together.
I am getting a bit concerned about the domain name aftermarket right now. As an investor, this could be a good time to buy great domain names, and I am continuing to buy domain names to add to my portfolio.
