While the rest of the domain world is heading off to Domainfest, I just picked up my early bird ticket to Traffic in October. Rick sent out an email blast last night and also posted about the remaining early bird tickets on his blog this morning. You might recall, one of my goals for this year is to attend at least one major domain conference. I already have a week long obligation in February that conflicts, so Domainfest Santa Monica is out of the question for me. I think I am the only one on the planet not attending.
I’m looking forward to attending Traffic and meeting many of the people I’ve talked to and interacted with over the past year. While interacting with people online via forums, blogs and emails, there is nothing like a gathering of great minds. If you are looking for some encouragement, something to nudge you into attending a show, have a look back at this post where I asked Rick, Elliot, Michael Castello, and others about why you should attend a domain conference. October is a long way off, but it will be here before you know it. If you decide at some point that you’re going to attend Traffic, let me know, maybe we could meet up.
