DomainSponsor, the domain monetization division of Oversee.net,
announced today that Steve Wozniak will be the keynote speaker at the
third annual DOMAINfest Global event scheduled for January 28-30,
2009 in Hollywood, California. Their press release describes Woz as “the Apple Computer, Inc. co-founder and
Silicon Valley icon is one of the most influential and colorful
innovators in technology history, and is credited with helping shape
the personal computer industry with his Apple designs.”
This should be a fascinating event for those in the domain industry. Woz is also one of the founders of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which “confronts cutting-edge issues
defending free speech, privacy, innovation, and consumer rights today.”
I’m a little new to this and do not understand what Steve Wozniak would have to say about making money with domain names. Am I missing something?
I’m not sure what he will have to say either, but I’m excited to be able to hear him. At one point in his life, he and Steve Jobs had some amazing insights into the future of people using computers and technology. Maybe he will have some insightful things to say about today.
