The Lowdown

April 21, 2008 Post

Here's the The Lowdown from DNJournal.com! Updated daily to fill you in on the latest buzz going around the domain name industry!

Compiled by Ron Jackson (Editor/Publisher)


Sunday's schedule at the Domain Roundtable conference in San Francisco was headlined by former Sex.com owner Gary Kremen's keynote speech. Kremen's travails with Sex.com 

(which was hijacked by a convicted felon who was eventually caught and jailed) have been documented in a book and many magazine articles. We also had an in-depth profile of Kremen in our March 2006 Cover Story.

Kremen was also one of the founders of Match.com, a pioneering dating site he said he conceived to help find himself a wife. Kremen sold the site before finding a mate but he told attendees he just got married for the first time last month (drawing a warm round of applause from the audience). Kremen talked about his many years in the domain business and what he has learned along the way. Kremen said he is now thinking of starting a new parking company because he thinks he can improve on today's PPC system.

Sunday's schedule also featured four seminars

and a luncheon sponsored by the new .me registry. We will detail all of those sessions in our show wrap-up article that will be out by this time next week. But first things first. We still have one day to go as the show closes with a live auction today (I am actually sitting in the auction room as I write this and we are about halfway through the sale) followed by an after show party tonight at local hotspot The Cellar. I'll have a final post from San Francisco tomorrow morning before heading back to our home office in Florida where we will begin work on our comprehensive conference review article.
