Seminar 2:45-3:45 gTLD From Hype to Handicapping with Michael Cyger

2:45PM-3:45PM  You heard their pitch. Now what? Michael Cyger of will moderate this provocative panel. We all have friends involved with the new gTLD's and we don't want to say anything negative, but our top-tier group of outspoken domainers will get past that and logically handicap the rollout of all the gTLD's. Plus, they'll discuss which ones have the most likely chance of wide adaptation and increasing values. How long that will take? Then, go a step beyond, and measure it against traditional extensions, and their time vs return and risk vs reward ratios. Not all gTLD's are created equal. Some think these gtld's will be on fire; yet, others think they will fizzle out.

Braden Pollock, Michael Gilmour, Mark Hershiser, Michael Castello
