Okay, before I start I have to say…I honestly can’t get enough of this view. I feel like I’ve taken dozens of photos of the same view…but every time I see it I can’t help myself. The photo above I took this afternoon after the first half of the day’s activities came to a close.
The weather in Asheville has been pretty much perfect since we got here. Last night it rained for about five minutes, otherwise it was a nice warm night and today has been beautiful.
Today kicked off at 11AM with opening remarks from Rick which I recorded and just uploaded to You Tube. After Rick’s remarks the mic opened up to anyone who wanted to introduce themselves and share a bit more about what they’re doing in the Domain Industry and what synergies they’re looking to find at the show.
During the afternoon session Michael Berkens gave a really interesting talk about new gTLDs sharing some very interesting data from his own portfolio. Michael opened it up to questions when he was done and we had one of the most interesting discussions I’ve heard about new gTLDs, and don’t worry, I got that on video too which I’ll likely be uploading and sharing this weekend.
Now I’m back in my room and I’m going to try to sneak in a quick nap before the ghost tour and rooftop party. So, with that, here’s the video of Rick’s opening remarks today, enjoy!
