Life is What U Make It

 Mark As Read    

I grew up on a cul-de-sac in suburbia. I was an idealistic kid, a dreamer and I didn’t focus well in my early years. This really concerned my parents who were worried what might become of their eldest. Who would hire me? I’m fond of telling friends that “I could never get jobs – so

Abra-cadabra

 Mark As Read    

I just returned from the TRAFFIC domain conference in South Florida last night and it was an absolute honor to have won the prestigious Domainer of The Year Award for the third time. The real reward is just being nominated, but getting the hat-trick (my third win) left me feeling very proud and humbled indeed.

Lobster

 Mark As Read    

  I'm not sure what it is about summer that makes time spent working, seem to inch-by so slowly. The Olympics were an additional distraction this year, a one-two punch of long days and the spectacle of competition in London may help explain why collective traffic volumes swooned so deeply this year.  Summer is always

Lady Gaga and New TLDs – Why Google Has Assured Their Future

 Mark As Read    

I was recently at the Googleplex in Mountain View, and so was Lady Gaga..  I know why I came but I’m constantly amazed by the parade of famous and not-so-famous who put on their Sunday best to kneel at the altar which is Google – a forward thinking company that has most of us either

The Government Has *Gulp*, Vanished

 Mark As Read    

A interesting note from a very smart person:   "This morning I woke up to find .gov missing. Now, I know that some people would find that an exciting, positive event. But on the net it wasn't so positive, but it was exciting. What seems to have occurred is this: – DNSSEC keys for .gov

In New gTLDs, The Only Certainty is Change

 Mark As Read    

Watching the news this morning it was hard not to feel bad for the poor Greeks. Yes, their leaders made unwise choices. Yes, they don’t work as many hours as their Northern neighbors. Too many Greek countrymen work for their government, effectively draining the public coffers rather than contributing to the real economy and growing

There Are No Accidents

 Mark As Read    

It’s been a while since I posted on my blog. “There are no accidents” as the wise Turtle in Kung-fu Panda once said. That statement is true of my most recent hiatus from this blog as much as it is of other serendipitous happenings in my life.  When I’m blogging, I’m not innovating.  Blogging is

Greatness in our Everyday

 Mark As Read    

Thinking about the domain name business and the Butterfly effect I mentioned in a recent post, I was left wondering what would have happened if I had never found this space. What would I have done for a living? There were people I encountered early in the domain-world who clearly inspired me

Hot Tub Time Machine

Friday nights are movie night at my place. Life in the Cayman Islands doesn?t offer that much cinema selection, so I built a really kick-ass theater in the house. Imagine feather stuffed sofas, suede paneled walls, muti-tiered wood ceiling, a monster-ass Capiz shell chandelier and the Panasonic 103. Tonight?s viewing selection consisted of ?Hot...
