Care to share some examples of your domain investments?
My domain portfolio is quite diverse – DOTCOM, DOTME, DOTMOBI, DOTORG, DOTINFO, DOTNET, and some names in other extensions.
I buy lots of domains on the secondary market. In fact, I purchased three solid DOTME GEOS yesterday, and I made an investment in premium DOTME names.
You have been a big proponent of .ME on Namepros.com, what drove your belief in .ME?
Some of the reasons I invested in DOTME – it just seemed to mesh with the direction of the web – more personalized and more user-generated content. I thought the GEOS were great for DOTME because you could develop sites with reviews, recommendations, etc, and I also invested in DOTME group names such as Teens, Teams, Family, Latinas, Boomers, Baby Boomers, Celebs, as I thought they could be great blogging sites. I thought diary.me fit the extension well, as well as Hollywood.me and several call-to-action verbs I have like chart.me.
