Webfest Here I Come Plus Save On dotMe Domains

I'm heading off to Montenegro tomorrow morning for Webfest. The lineup is impressive and I'm really looking forward to it.

I'll be speaking about marketing on a shoestring budget (assuming I can put my $random thoughts into semi-coherent Powerpoint slides .. )

Anyway to celebrate the event and to brighten up the week we (Blacknight) are doing a special discounted offer on .me domain registration. Full details here

XXX Sunrise Now Live

James did a nice little graphic (or two) to help promote the launch of .xxx domains

This one is pretty slick IMHO

Help Me Rewrite My Bio

Ok this might seem like an odd request, but "odd" and me tend to follow each other around at the best of times ..

I'll be speaking at several events over the next few months and most event organisers ask for a "bio" - however I'm not exactly sure if the one I have is ideal..

So, working on the basis that you have a $clue who I am and what I do ..

Here's the current version - polite constructive input welcome via the comments:

Michele Neylon is the founder and managing director of the Irish based registrar and hosting provider Blacknight.
Neylon is an active member of the Internet industry, an award winning social media expert/evangelist and blogger. Neylon has spoken at numerous Internet Industry events covering a range of topics including policy, security, ICANN, Nominet, the IGF and Investment/First Tuesday.
A graduate of European Studies from the University of Limerick, Ireland, Neylon focuses primarily on European Internet issues and policy as well as serving on the Eurid registrar advisory board and the ENUM 353 policy advisory board.

Random Bits and Bobs

The .co launch started a few hours ago and seems to be doing very well

We finally setup our own custom URL shortener, though I'm still trying to find a TwitterFeed alternative that will allow us to use our own shortener sanely.

We're working on a bunch of different things over in Blacknight at the moment, so I'm looking forward to being able to talk about some of the final products.

On the negative side .. I seem to be spending a dis-ordinate amount of time dealing with legal threats. Between us being easy to find and lawyers not really understanding the internet, we seem to be an "easy" target.

Domain Switch – No More .com – Long Live .me!

whynotshowyourselfalittlelove.jpg

I've always been a very strong believer in "eating my own dog food", so when we started offering .tel domain names I got one for myself and started using it. I've had a few .me domains since the launch, but apart from using a couple for work, I hadn't moved any of my personal sites over to .me

That, as you can see in your browser's address bar, has now changed.

Mneylon.com will still resolve, but you'll be moved to mneylon.me

I was half thinking of using micheleneylon.me, but it's a bit long.. What do you think?

In any case this site is now residing under mneylon.me

And if you want to get a .me domain for your own blog or project head over to the only Irish registrar for .me domains - Blacknight and grab one now
