Brandable Domains vs Lottery Ticket

I often get emails to valuate brandable domains and usually, my response is a negative one.

I won a Speeding Ticket trial!

Project Updates

I had a very busy week, fallowed by the weekend.  I attended one day of DomainFest and it was great. A Great place to meet domainers of all levels, and what’s also great is that you get to meet representatives from all different domain related companies.

Tour of Petersen Automotive Museum – DomainFest Party

I lived in Los Angeles for most of my life but had never been to this place. It certainly is a very interesting museum and cars are just amazing. I managed to take a few pictures of the cars. Take a look.

DomainFest Wednesday – Workshops

I attended yesterday’s DomainFest, it was pretty good. It’s pretty amazing to see hundreds of domainers from around the world in one place. This was my first domaining conference and I am very pleased.
