Am I missing Something?

Did ICANN deliberately program their Seoul Meeting (25th to 30th Oct) to clash with TRAFFICS New York (26th to 29th Oct)?

And if so why would they do that?

I'm guessing that Seoul was set up first, not sure though.

TRAFFIC wouldn't even register on ICANN's radar.

Sorry guys, I was trying to be ironic, but won't Rick notice there are quite a few regulars missing? Was this really the most astute time to be trying to be putting on the main event of the year? Or will they just not bother with all this New gTLD stuff?

Phew. I thought you were serious for a moment.

There won't be any regulars missing. Who cares about the new gTLDs anyways?
Rick's a salesman. He sells real stuff. The only real stuff on his radar atm is, ascii com
He doesn't deal with hypothetical stuff [unless he happens to make the hypothesis].

I thought you've been following his blog? ;P

Somehow I doubt that. The ICA will be in Seoul as will as will all the Registries, just about all the mains Registrars. Even the likes of Ham and Schilling must be at least toying with the idea of the own registries even if they are only dot com typos. No doubt he can still count on the blinkered hardcore of ASCII.comers and a bucketful of naive newbies, but was it really wise?

The T.R.A.F.F.I.C. New York conference got underway last night with a welcoming cocktail party at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott. A good crowd was on hand (show organizers said approximately 270 people has registered) despite conflicting dates with the ICANN meeting currently underway in Seoul, Korea that siphoned away a considerable number of people who would have been at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. otherwise.

Hmm, the same source reports about the previous T.R.A.F.F.I.C. event [silicone valley]

Though the crowd is lighter than usual for a T.R.A.F.F.I.C. event...
-unfortunately I didn't see any registered numbers.

Again, for the show before that [Amsterdam] the registered attendees were 200

So, it seems to me that the New York event [270 peoples regged] is doing as well, or better compared to the last two events, in terms of attendance...

Undoubtedly, the ICAN't Seoul meeting siphoned some people away, but hardly a noticeable effect on the traffic event and no reason for the show producers to consider altering their show's dates.

Yeah, I finally decided to sell some Ascii at the auction and got them approved. Hopefully I they sell with both meetings going on at once and all... fingers crossed.
