TRAFFIC ccTLD auction, Next Lot Peter! 
I was invited by Paul Jansen of SIDN to visit Rick Latona's T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference (1-4 June, Amsterdam).

I had some nice conversation's with Kellie Peterson of, Donny Simonton of, Sander Cruiming of XXLWebhosting, Hans van de Streek and Yom Schutte of, David Clements President of Rick Latona Auctions , Hennie Groot Lipman , supposed to be the biggest domainer in The Netherlands and Matt Lowery , the world livestock champion .

Eventually I ended up on stage pronouncing all cc-tld domain names at the first TRAFFIC ccTLD auction . I was up there for 3 hours. It was a very interesting experience to see the domainers bidding from the 'other side'. Check out this image (source: )

Thanks go out to all people I spoke to and hope to keep in touch.

What can we learn from this? Not much I guess, I think the service has become less effective and useful. But I am glad 50% of our company name is mentioned ;-). And Twitter of course, important!

First impression of 
Today I will be meeting up with the team behind . After hearing and reading a lot about I finally got the chance to check the service myself. Must say I see lots of potential, but also lots of work to be done ;-). Ideas that popped up in my mind for example!

- Add more content on top of the movies
- Combine and edit movies?
- More options for publishing movies (facebook?)
- domain registration integration would be great (register your own domain to be used with your account)

this last one will be something I will discuss tomorrow, as we ( can provide such a service together with Hopefully you will see the implementation of it soon!
