    My thoughts on NamesCon 2018.

    I arrived home in Austin yesterday after NamesCon and I’m officially in rest-your-voice mode. My fingers can still type, though, so here are my thoughts:

    I gave a recap after a couple days and said China was dead. Of course, that was a bit of an overstatement. George Hong of Guta.com saw me shortly after I posted that and gave me his thoughts. They will be in Monday’s podcast. The reality is that China is still investing, they are just investing in the good stuff. No more 7-8 digit domain names…

    The highlight for me was interviewing Megadeth co-founder David Ellefson in person. If you missed the interview, you can listen to my previous interview with Ellefson on the DNW Podcast. I think a lot of people were surprised by the talk.
