Back In The Blogging Saddle Again

It has been a week since my last blog post, and that has been due to my unusual travel schedule. Though I am still on the road, I am getting reacclimated to a schedule I have some control over and getting some work done.

DOMAINfest logoEarlier this week was DOMAINfest conference, a 3-day conference on the domain name industry in Hollywood, California. For those unaware, there really is a domain name industry! Though I write often on domain names, it only scratches the surface of all involved, much of it came to light this week. Everything from the value of domain names and how people choose them and monetize them to legal issues, it was a full conference.

DOMAINfest was run by, a company that owns many companies including registration, domain parking and aftermarket acquisition services. They have made acquisitions to make them a major player, consolidating the number of companies out there serving the industry. But isn’t that just business? Anyway, I will be pouring through my notes, photos and videos and writing more on this great event. logoPrior to arriving on the west coast I was on the east coast for the AFC Championship Game, which was won by my beloved Patriots 21-12, earning them a spot in the Super Bowl against the New York Giants. It was a cold game but nothing intolerable, and though they had a rough start they came out on top in the end.

I haven’t talked much about the Pats here, more to keep The Hot Iron on topic and not throw anything in the face of my fellow Chicagoans, especially after how the Bears did (or didn’t do) this season. For that, visit my Web site, Seeing them going perfect at 18-0 is about all I am planning to see, as the price of Super Bowl tickets is a little out of the range of this entrepreneur’s budget. Though if anyone feels generous, please feel free to contact me!
