19 People Bill Wants to Meet at Namescon


[This post is written by Bill Hartzer, our SEO expert writer for MorganLinton.com] As you probably are aware, the amazing Namescon conference is coming up January 13 to 15, 2014 in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. I’m headed there a day early and plan on making the most of this domain name conference.

Going through my pre-conference checklist, I realized that I hadn’t made a list of people I absolutely must meet, in person, during this conference. And if they’re lucky, I might even buy them a drink or two (even if they don’t drink). After all, these are 19 amazing people that have helped me in one way or another in the past–and I owe a big “thank you” to each and every one of them (not necessarily in this order, though):

Donna Mahony
Richard Lau
Frank Michlick
Adam Strong
John Yeomans
David Harrison
Shaun Pilfold
Kevin Allen
Dave Evanson
Bob Olea
Paul Nicks
Mike Robertson
Elliot Silver
Brian Gilbert
Duane Forrester
Adam Dicker
Morgan Linton
Aron Meystedt
Braden Pollock

So, if you’re going to Namescon, who are the people that you absolutely must meet?

    That the writer of this post has yet to meet the blog’s owner shows how in this online world you can work closely with someone without having met them in person.

    Hi Bill,
    See you there! 😀

  • Morgan January 7, 2014, 9:04 pm

    @Fizz – I’ve met Bill before 🙂 I think he’s just saying he’d like to spend more time together/meet at NamesCon as well!

  • Adam January 7, 2014, 10:55 pm

    I was thinking to myself “wait a sec. Morgan has talked to me in person a bunch of times.”
    It’ll be good to meet you Bill. . . .

    Yes, for anyone confused, this post is written by one of my awesome writers Bill who covers SEO-related posts for MorganLinton.com. If you haven’t met Bill I highly recommend you spend some time with him at NamesCon, he will blow your mind with his SEO Ninja skills 🙂

    Well, if Bill doesn’t want to me meet me, what the hell is the point of going?

  • Donna Mahony January 8, 2014, 4:12 am

    @Kevin Murphy I want to meet you..does that count a little? 🙂

  • Bill Hartzer January 8, 2014, 5:05 am

    @fizz, the point of this post is really ‘tongue and cheek’. Just thought I’d take an odd number of people and put them on a list.

    Of course my list is growing every day, and there’s a lot more than 19 people I’d like to meet (and see) at Namescon this year. 😉

  • Bill Hartzer January 8, 2014, 5:06 am

    @Kevin Murphy I totally forgot you… sorry about that!

  • Donna Mahony January 8, 2014, 5:10 am

    Bill said “Just thought I’d take an odd number of people and put them on a list.”

    But he meant to say “take a number of odd people and put them on a list!”

    See you there Bill!

    There’s an impressive list of speakers for this event…
    Which Companies do you most want to touch base with while there ??

    @~Patricia I’m not sure if that was directed to somebody in particular but I am most looking forward to meeting Duane Forrester and hearing Duane Forrester and hearing him speak. His books are awesome and I’m betting he is too.

  • Paul Nicks January 8, 2014, 7:30 am

    Hey Bill, I’ll see you out there for sure.

    My list is pretty large but I want to focus on the domainers that I’ve somehow missed in past conferences (Donna, Aron and a few others)


  • Braden January 8, 2014, 11:42 am

    I’ll be there! See you next week. 🙂

  • larry fischer January 8, 2014, 12:10 pm

    i guess it will be nice not to see you either 🙂

  • Bill Hartzer January 8, 2014, 1:14 pm

    @larry fischer I’ll see you next week!
