Weekend Musings and Hello From Vegas!

Hello, Happy Saturday, and welcome to my weekend musings. I can tell you that 2013 is definitely going to be a great year if it’s anything like the past week. Linton Investments had a very strong start to 2013 with three domains sold, and one getting ready to sell to one of the biggest Hollywood entertainers on the planet (can’t say more as this one is under NDA, but it’s a great start to the year!).

Fashion Metric has had a great start to the year as well as we continue to work with our early customers who have been alpha testing the algorithm with us. We’re getting ready to go into relative hibernation as we build the next rev of the algorithm and get ready to run the second alpha. Right now I’d say that about 10 hours of my day go to Fashion Metric and about 2 hours go to Domaining…but that doesn’t mean the Domaining business isn’t rocking and rolling, it just means that I’ve finally found the right people to grow the business without me having to be involved in the day-to-day, and that is a great feeling!

Now we’re in Vegas for a weekend of R&R before a very big week ahead. This is one of the things I love about LA, we can leave for Vegas at 8PM and play craps at Caesar’s all in the same night. For those who don’t know, I love Vegas, it’s a great city and this will be the first year that I’m not going to CES. I’ve been to CES with Sonos for the last 8 years, this year I’m just enjoying a nice weekend with Daina and leaving before the CES madness begins, awesome!

That’s all for now, tonight we’ll be doing a bit of shopping at one of Daina’s favorite stores – Top Shop and then going to see a show. Hope you’re all having a great weekend, and get ready for a BIG 2013, from what I’ve seen so far this year is going to be amazing for everyone in the Domaining world!
