Are we famous yet?

I'm getting about 1400 type-ins per day on about 230 parked IDNs (many others aren't parked), earning more revenue than renewals on a yearly basis.

Nobody cares about smoke and mirrors (what is happening in private); what is happening in public is what matters. On a positive note, my google notifications regarding IDN news have increased as of late. But are we famous yet? I'm still not rich despite all of my blood, sweat, and tears.

In terms of domain sales, the only notable ones (not sold for peanuts) I have had have been arabic.

Re: Are we famous yet?

Patience will be duly rewarded.

Rushing the inevitable won't really help things at all. That just creates bubbles.

If this works you wont need parties to reassure your success. You will simply be able to skulk around on your yacht.

Parties aren't to reassure success, but to create opportunities to meet people one wouldn't otherwise meet.

Keeping things low profile is very good, but to develop anything takes local partners.

The way i see it, if we don't see a major change by June 2012 something isn't right however i don't see how we won't see a mind blowing shift by that time. This game is too big for anyone to delay or expedite it.

After 5.5 years of waiting for me and double that time for a few others, i think it's helpful to know we are close to knowing what we already forgot...

I am seeing an incremental shift on a daily basis. We had a record number of clicks again yesterday. It is not difficult to identify the trend.

I think this 'trend' will make energizer look like a fucking bunny. Seriously it's more of a small taste of what's coming, and it won't look pretty to those who continue to wait on the 'real' idn.

Anyone in Barcelona in August btw?

Those who believe in Real IDN are still looking for the fucking Easter Bunny.
