CNN Anchor Rick Sanchez to Deliver Keynote Address at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. New York October 27

CNN news anchor Rick Sanchez  has been chosen to deliver the keynote address at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. New York conference October 27th (the show runs Oct. 26-29 at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott). There is a connection between CNN and T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Co-Founder Rick Schwartz who sold the domain name iReport.com to the cable news network for $750,000. In reference to that transaction, Schwartz noted "It was a sale that could be pointed to for many years to come by every domainer and every time a domainer watched CNN and saw iReport.com it would give them the fuel to keep going." Sanchez has already decided to donate his fee for speaking to charity.

Yesterday, we published an exclusive T.R.A.F.F.I.C. New York preview featuring an in-depth interview with Schwartz and fellow T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Co-Founder Howard Neu. The wide ranging conversation touched on a number of topics, including some that reached beyond the bounds of the show itself - most notably Schwartz's view of the general economy and how its prospects will affect domain owners in the year ahead.

Starting Thursday, the cost to register jumps to $895.

Another reminder for domain auction fans - a nice group of names related to money and finance will be featured in the SnapNames October Showcase Auction that gets underway tomorrow (October 13) at 12 Noon Eastern time (9am Pacific).
