Interview with Rubber Duck + How to Get Started with IDNs

Quote:
How does becoming wealthier than Frank Schilling sound? Schilling, the most successful individual domainer in the world, has a portfolio of about 300,000 names, estimated revenue of $20 million dollars per year, and has received several 9-figures offers for his portfolio. Yet according to long-time IDN investor and IDN expert David Wrixon, "[t]here are IDN investors out there that will make Frank Schilling look like an amateur."

Thanks Dave for all of your help in putting this together!

excellent interview RD. At some point I will probably use this line of yours for a variety of things:

"Those that are waiting have the wrong end of the telescope against the eye."

Awesome! A crack head! You can't even buy crack here..

Wonder if that Danny is the same guy from Frank's blog (I suspected he was Rick). Ah right, now I remember - Dan Guyes. Or maybe it's SciFi (Miguel Dessen). He really does not like me after I exposed his banned ass coming back here again and again.

Re: Interview with Rubber Duck + How to Get Started with IDNs

Very nice.

Seems many people have big expectation for IE7 update. I am a little conservative.
If people do not know IDN, how can they type IDN even they got IE7? For those who really want to try it, they may already got IE7 anyway. IE7 will help for sure, but may not be as much as we are expecting.

I think we still need to wait. We need something to give IDN a big push so that when people just started using Internet, they know they have IDN.

JameZ, some of us will be laughing if we can just get enough fuel for our F1 racing cars to do about 5 mph. We can worry about how to fuel the private jet later! :p

IE7[updates] isn't what will bring a flood of type-in automatically. IE7 will assist when type-in occurs, but it's development/promotion that will create awareness. I've been trying so hard to get my hands on domains that I actually care for just so I can put up BS on there promoting IDNs, but it's not working out so well. I have lots of domains, but stuff I can't do anything with just because I don't have the skill/language necessity to get the right information on there. Going to try and take things to the next level within a couple months.

This is why I'm trying to get internet marketers in on the IDN scene. 99% do not know what IDNs are.

I think it might be a good idea for the big hitters here to issue some press releases. They are very cheap and can have a very wide readership in offline media too.
