This is shaping up to be an unusual weekend as I will spend ALL of it flying. I will be leaving  for Australia Saturday afternoon (U.S. EST) and, because I will be crossing the International 

dateline, I won't arrive on the Gold Coast until Monday afternoon (their time - which is 15 hours later than it is here in Florida). I am, of course, heading to Oz to cover next week's T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Down Under conference, the first T.R.A.F.F.I.C. show to be staged outside the U.S. 

Fabulous.com, who is based in Brisbane, is handling the conference under license from T.R.A.F.F.I.C. co-founders Rick Schwartz and Howard Neu. I know Fabulous will do a great job with the event and am looking forward to seeing everyone there. If you haven't already read it, be sure to check out our full conference preview article in which Fab's Dan Warner and Michael Robertson provide all of the details on what will be happening during show week.

Starting Monday, I'll file a daily item from Australia to keep you abreast of the conference highlights. As always, a few days after I get back we will publish a comprehensive wire to wire conference review to fill you in on what happened from start to finish. 

Also today we want to send our congratulations out to Oversee.net's Jeff Kupietzky who has just been promoted from Executive Vice President to President of the company. As most of you know Oversee is the parent company of DomainSponsor, Moniker and SnapNames and also stages the annual DOMAINfest Global conference in Hollywood, California. Oversee co-founder Lawrence Ng, who was featured in our March 2008 Cover Story, had been serving as President but will now concentrate on his duties as Chairman of the Board and Kupietzky will also join the board.

In announcing the changes today Oversee said, "The move follows a thorough succession planning process and places Kupietzky, a longtime Oversee executive, at the helm as an experienced domain name and online advertising industry leader. As Chairman, Ng will remain actively involved in guiding the company he co-founded eight years ago with fellow Oversee.net board member Fred Hsu .  Oversee is a very profitable and fast growing organization, on track to deliver double-digit revenue growth this year."

Mr. Ng said, "Now is the right time for new leadership to drive the business to the next level. Jeff Kupietzky has worked closely with me for several years, he has in-depth understanding of the market and the company and he’s ready to help Oversee expand its industry leadership position." Kupietzky said he is looking forward to

taking on his new role adding “I’m thrilled to be working with Oversee’s customers to deliver more value. We have a very talented employee base, one that will build successfully on the firm’s relationships with our advertising and marketing partners.”
