IDNs to be Featured at T.R.A.F.F.IC. Miami

Nice to see T.R.A.F.F.I.C. put IDNs on the agenda . . .

Re: IDNs to be Featured at T.R.A.F.F.IC. Miami

with ".whatever" being put in the same sentence as IDNs I am not getting my hopes up.

“3:00 Is the Gold Rush beginning or ending? The impact of the new gtld’s, IDN, and will .whatever be meaningful. When? How big an impact or none at all? Is the second coming of .com hope, hype or the future? How much is result oriented and how much is wishful thinking?”

Having said that, if the "IDN expert" that presents is a member here if you need help with research or anything else let us know. I would be more than willing to help as I am sure many others would be as well.

Title should be corrected to "IDNs to be bashed at T.R.A.F.F.IC. Miami"

It is also my opinion that Rick always follows the money "his money". Why would he push something that he doesn't have a vested interest in? Unless he is setting something up with when the real IDNs are launched IMO he is a great salesman, he could sell ice to the Eskimos so I believe he has a plan, I just don't think it will benefit many here.

Re: IDNs to be Featured at T.R.A.F.F.IC. Miami

interesting comment from Howard on his blog

Quote:
Rick and I have discussed whether or not IDNs should be included in a T.R.A.F.F.I.C. CONFERENCE. It was my thinking that the future of IDNs is very good and their use will be increasing by leaps and bounds, particularly in countries that do not use Arabic symbols and lettering. With the exception of North and South America, Western Europe, Australia and parts of Africa, the rest of the world uses Cyrrrilic, or Greek or Aramaic or Chinese or Japanese or any number of other characters for their languages and it is more than time to recognize this at T.R.A.F.F.I.C.

So there will be no IDN bashing, but rather there will be positive education on the growing market of IDN domains.

He probably meant "Latin" and not "Arabic"

I would say that's it.

He's probably thinking Arabic numerals (as opposed to Roman numerals).

Still, I wouldn't want him representing me in court. He would probably plea bargain a traffic offence to Murder 1.

Good publicity to a good audience...idns have finally reached the outskirts of their "radar" :p

Not holding any hopes out for any earth shaking changes....but albeit were moving in the right direction.

Re: IDNs to be Featured at T.R.A.F.F.IC. Miami

I don't know if they are related but Michael Neu has owned IDN's since 2006.

From his website: NeptuneVentures.com

" Neptune manages an Internet investment portfolio that targets the underdeveloped global Internet landscape. Neptune owns some of the top International Domain Names (IDN’s) across several languages including Chinese, Arabic, Russian, Spanish, Japanese among others. Many of these markets are underdeveloped compared to the Internet in the United States and are currently experiencing rapid growth."

Great find Clotho! I believe "Neptune" was quite active around here several years ago, built up a nice portfolio. However, I don't know if they are related. "Neptune" is a long time IDNFer :D so if he is the expert presenting we should be alright

I'm in total agreement. Lumping IDN with new gtlds (as if they are the same) and then allowing only an hour of discussion for BOTH will not bring anything meaningful forward. Period.

@RD

I take it your voicemail isn't full of messages from Rick asking for your opinioin.

I seem to remember Neptune buying a few domains. Who knows what goes on there?

You shouldn't be too surprised. They don't do IDNs because they are dotcom guys. That's why they hype up .co.

Re: IDNs to be Featured at T.R.A.F.F.IC. Miami

When IDNs get larger amounts of steady verifiable TRAFFIC (and revenues) they will get a much warmer welcome.

Times are changing, within a few years IDNs may be among the bigger sellers at auctions as most ASCII domainers are still asking ridiculous prices. The majority of the last few auctions have been busts compared to expectations.
