I just returned from my family road trip to Florida. We spent a week on the beach and then a couple of days in Disney World. No major disasters and traveling 20 hours each way with 4 kids really wasn’t bad at all. It’s always great to take a trip, but even better to come home.
I enjoyed the family time, but I neglected my blog a bit while I was away. I did managed to get a few posts in. It’s time to get back to business. For now, here are a few miscellaneous items I want to mention briefly.
- Hopefully you have read my interview with Elliot Silver which was posted over at MO.com today. I’ve mentioned Elliot here a few times and there is much to be learned from his blog. He’s a model for success in the domain business.
- “.CO” is all the rage at the moment. I actually saw a tweet the other day that said “It’s supposed to be bigger than .com.” I am no expert, but I think we will see that there are a couple of successful .CO’s in the pack and that will be about it. My guess is that it will be like most of the other tld releases we have seen. I think “.xxx” would be more successful. What .CO has going for it is that it’s a typo of .com. Time will tell.
- Finally, I was somewhat productive while on vacation. I acquired the domain PlasmaTV.com in a private transaction. I am currently working with a couple of different parties to try to strike a development deal. I’d prefer to keep this one, but I may end up selling. Too early to tell. I’ll keep you posted with the progress on this one because I think it will make for some good posts going forward. I’d also like to hear any ideas you might have about this domain. Post a comment and let me know.
