Hot Tub Time Machine

Hot Tub Time Machine

Friday nights are movie night at my place. Life in the Cayman Islands doesn’t offer that much cinema selection, so I built a really kick-ass theater in the house. Imagine feather stuffed sofas, suede paneled walls, muti-tiered wood ceiling, a monster-ass Capiz shell chandelier and the Panasonic 103. Tonight’s viewing selection consisted of “Hot Tub [...]

BLACK GOLD

I am lucky on so many levels.  Not only in business, but I get to share my thoughts and opinions with those who care to know them; and some do.  I certainly never thought I’d write a blog.  Long before blogs the best outlet for venting of ideas was a magazine or periodical which might let [...]

The ERROR is in the Details

Greetings from Malibu. No matter how bad things get in the local economy the surf and sand and birds and trees always look the same. It’s much colder this year.. very chilly. A fitting metaphor for the difficult economic times this state finds itself in. I first came to Malibu as a teenager from Canada [...]

Domain Distribution Vacuum

Greetings from France.  I’m a US centric guy so I never thought I’d be writing from France, let alone gushing about how enjoyable it is to be among the French people in the summer.  They really have a great panache and a style and it’s neat to hang out where everyone tries hard to be [...]

What does a guy who is well known for “not selling domains” know about selling domain names?  Well I might just know a thing or two.  As the title of this post states:  Everybody sells. It doesn’t matter whether you’re selling cars, homes, financial instruments, religion..  everyone sells something.  Some of us are hard-sell : [...]

My Kingdom for An Eyeball

My Kingdom for An Eyeball

What a world we live in..  and what a great deal a man (or woman) can learn in a month away from the blog-sphere.. Deals announced, partnerships strategized and all roads lead to the ability to reach our fellow-man.   I’ve been traveling for family issues (nothing serious folks) over the past month –  I’ve been [...]

2008 and Beyond

2008 and Beyond

  It’s wonderful being back after an extended vacation break. I used to scoff at vacationing (vacations are for the weak), but I was amazed that those friends and colleagues who took longer absences around the holidays skated circles around my productivity around March and April of the next year. I won’t bore you folks [...]
