Here is short interview from James Trevino that is the Founder/President/CEO of .VEGAS New gTLd. The interview first appeared in the .vegas official website.
What drew me to the domain name field:
A venture investment that paid off in 1999.
Why I love what I do:
Everything. I could never tell the difference between work and vacation. I have met and become friends with heads of state, famous actors and cab drivers in countries all over the world.
What should people know about .Vegas?
It will change the virtual landscape of Las Vegas in unimaginable ways. Many new businesses will be created. Vegas will be one of the most popular cities on the Internet in the next 10 years.
My .Vegas domain would be…
It depends on what I was trying to accomplish. For example:
-If I wanted to influence the political process I would pick something like www.politics.vegas .
-If I wanted a pure business play it would be something like www.hotels.vegas.
-If I wanted it to do something philanthropic it would be something like www.schools.vegas.
A fact about me:
I am a voracious reader. I read at least five books a month on every imaginable subject from biographies to science to poetry to accounting. I have been doing this consistently for the past 35 years. I love to walk. It gives me time to think. I walk 5 to 15 miles a day especially when I am visiting foreign cities. I love the outdoors. I have a place in Kalispell Montana. I spend as much time as I can in the woods or visiting Glacier National Park.
