NamesCon announced today their first keynote speaker for NamesCon Europe 2019: professional big wave surfer Andrew Cotton.
“Andrew has built a life and career out of embracing the awesome power of the ocean. As one of the world’s most respected pro surfers, he travels the globe hunting some of the biggest and heaviest waves Mother Nature can throw at us, such as Peahi in Hawaii, Mavericks in California, and The Right in Western Australia. His journey has been one of triumph, heartbreak, and even back-break, and he has come out of it with hard-won wisdom for physical and mental resilience, branding, entrepreneurship, and motivating the people around him.”
“Join us in beautiful Cascais, Portugal andlearn from Andrew how to confront and become one with forces that may seem insurmountable, and how to bounce back from what may feel like total failure.”
“NamesCon Europe runs June 20-22 at the Pestana Citadela Cascais, overlooking the majestic ocean. Come ride the wave with us!”
10 days ago NamesCon Europe 2019 announced the topics of the expert panels.
Well that will be a nice break from the new tld garbage.

“how to bounce back from what may feel like total failure” – Spoiler alert: Treatment and recovery from serious orthopedic injury requires the intervention of experts in the subject who know what they are doing and have the appropriate credentials to practice medicine. Like many things in life, a positive attitude is a poor substitute for actually knowledge of a subject, such as the physicians who treated Mr. Cotton and who have a better use of their time and expertise than running around giving generic “motivational speeches” to prep an audience to think positively about taking substantial risks before herding them into a speculative auction.
Since there is a nearby surf school at Cascais, perhaps someone could work out an exchange program in which successful domain investors will give a presentation to surfers on how they can improve their surfing through lessons learned in domain investing, since it is clear that surfing and domain investing are pretty much the same thing.
