I was unaware you were an amateur gynocologist.

Hopefully we'll see you in AMS so you can share your skills.

Lets put it this way.

If I were in Amsterdam, I would not waste my time.

Re: T.R.A.F.F.I.C Amsterdam - who is going?

Come to Amsterdam anyway. You can always lobby surf the hotel. That's cheap, and there's no rule against attendees fratinising* with plebs. If the conference is booked out by the time I know for sure I'm going, that's exactly what I'll be doing.

*I need to invoke my Yanni-spell-checker here.

I'm glad that someone is kicking this off, but Rick and his staff don't appear to know exactly what a ccTLD is..

I hope it goes well for all of you who have submitted names. The Hotel Krasnapolsky is great for conferences and exhibitions.

Well he's either going to scoop up the IDNs or dump his ascii equivalents who knows....lol, hope you all have a good time and enjoy -- make some friends in the lobby.

This is taken out of context, so please read the whole article from Rick's blog if it interests you.

http://www.ricksblog.com/my_weblog/2...keup-call.html

"...Many think IDN will be the answer. Maybe, maybe not. I see no evidence of that even with the predictions I have heard for year after year that next week, next month, in 3 months it will explode. Just like cctld's or dotcom not all have value. I see IDN as a limited market in limited countries. Now that does not mean some folks won't make millions with them. It does mean that if you don't know how to pick a great domain and don't know the difference between a great one and a worthless one that the extension or whatever does not matter. Geography counts! Buying power counts! Attidudes count! That does not mean failure. It means a crappy IDN, a crappy cctld has the same value as a crappy dotcom. Nah dah. A liability is a liability no matter the extension. Most domainers don't understand to this day what makes one domain have great value and another one worthless. A liability. Now this is not universal in Europe. Some countries are much more aggressive and progressive than others. Some countries may favor IDN or cctld. Buying power of that group is key. But the market is still a long ways from maturity. Germany is a leader. Other countries like the UK have found success. But many have not yet gotten there. They are literally years behind and that spells opportunity. ... "

Re: T.R.A.F.F.I.C Amsterdam - who is going?

I can almost feel the tension. And it really is a shame that I will be at work.

Have to admit though, Holland is a bit flat for my liking. Went to Delft, all I can remember apart from having to purchase the necessary souvenir for the ex-wife was looking in all the trenches (degenerative obsession of a Civil Engineer). Everything was full of water. Ughhh!
