Adam Strong Beefs Up NameBio, Elliot Silver Has a New Son & Rick Schwartz Has Gotten Engaged!

We've gotten a lot of good news from some long time friends (and fellow writers) over the past 24 hours - some business and some personal. On the business side, Adam Strong, President at Strong Inc. (and co-founder of DomainNameNews.com) has announced a new strategic alliance with veteran domain investor/developer Michael Sumner that has allowed them to launch what Adam called "a revamped and re-energized website" at NameBio.com. NameBio provides a searchable historic domain names sales database that for nearly a decade has been a valuable resource for domain investors who want  to research comparable domain sales.

Improvements at the site include an enhanced mobile experience, more accurate comparable sales on domain details pages, and more than double the number of new sales added daily. The addition of more data has grown the database to a number eclipsing more than $1 Billion in aftermarket domain name sales.

The new website gives users the ability to search for comparable sales by any one of 10 primary categories and more than 250

subcategories. Sumner said, “We’ve keyword parsed and  categorized the entire historical data set. For example, a user trying to find comps for a gambling-related domain can now search the Games >> Gambling category rather than searching by keyword for dozens of related phrases, such as casino, poker, blackjack, slots, bingo, lottery, or jackpot.”  The sites's “pattern search,” which allows users to quickly find domains matching popular investment categories such as LLL, NNN, and CVCV, was also improved. Congrats to Michael and Adam on their new advances.

Now to the personal side of things where major congratulations are also in order for Elliot Silver (DomainInvesting.com) and his wife Karen on a new addition to their family - and to Rick Schwartz (the legendary domain investor, T.R.A.F.F.I.C. co-founder and now retired author of RicksBlog.com) and his new fiancée Jun!

Elliot & Karen (in the photo at top left) have announced the arrival of their second child - new son Oliver Mark Silver who was born last week, weighing 5 pounds, 10 ounces when he made his entrance a bit earlier than expected.  Both Oliver and Karen are doing well and we're sure their daughter is going to love having a baby brother!

Rick Schwartz made his big announcement to Facebook friends Monday when he revealed he had proposed to the lovely Jun on Friday (the day before Valentine's Day) and she made him a very happy man by saying yes! The wedding date hasn't been set yet but the joyous couple will have plenty of time to mull that over on an upcoming celebratory cruise! 

There's is more than enough bad news to go around in this world so we are always delighted to hear such good news on both the business and family fronts for our industry friends and colleagues.
