I’m excited for what the new year will bring, what new people I’ll meet, and what new topics we’ll learn about on DomainSherpa.
My favorite way to meet people is in person, and next week I’ll be in Las Vegas for the third annual NamesCon domain name conference, which promises to be a blockbuster event.
I’m making a list of what I need to do to prepare for next week, so I thought it was a good time to chat with the founders of NamesCon about what’s going to happen, what we need to be ready for, and how we can make the most of the event.
Get a notepad ready, prepare properly, and see you next week!
