Reading Time | 2 Minutes

We’ve never lived in a time where we’re bombarded daily, consciously and unconsciously, by a never-ending sea of advertisements.

Mail, radio, tv, email, text, phone, watch, video, podcast and a growing list other tips and tricks all in hope to secure the next customer.

As I read the latest edition of Community Impact for the Northwest Austin region, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a well-known brand advertising their annual face-to-face user conference using a .TO domain.

Why Use Questionable New Domain Extensions

Reading Time | 3 Minutes

Five years after global fanfare, and not many new domain extensions could be considered a profitable success, if successful at all.

There is no shortage of companies and persons shouting to the mountain top that all the good .com domains are taken. While there is a kernel of truth about a decent percentage of .com domains no longer available, this isn’t the complete truth or story.

It’s hard to believe that November is here and less than 60 days until the end of the year. Today kicks off open enrollment for marketplace health insurance.

With a new year around the corner, you’ll have roughly 45 days to take advantage of establishing coverage or switch plans for the upcoming year.

I was reminded tis’ the season for marketplace health insurance as I stopped for Rudy’s sweet tea on my way to an afternoon meeting.

In the last decade or so, coding is fast becoming a necessary skill for the kids of today to make their way and mark within the world.

Although known as the “Mecca of Music” throughout the world, Austin has stealthily become a hot-bed for all things tech — with companies like WeWork, Indeed, Google, Facebook, TechRanch, CapitalFactory, and more calling Austin home each day.

Mix music and tech with one of the largest universities in the world where what starts here changes the world — The University of Texas at Austin, it was not surprising when I stumbled upon a poster promoting the grand opening of theCoderSchool while in search of Rudy’s breakfast tacos.

Reading Time | 2 Minutes

While grabbing a bite to eat with a partner, catching up on business and personal updates, yesterday, I stumbled upon an interesting domain sighting for an Austin-based organization dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding new music since 2001.

This renown non-profit organization’s, New Music Co-op, poster likely wouldn’t have caught my eye as not much stuck out about it to me except for their domain using the .coop extension.

For real, I thought their poster was a a domain typo, having not known .coop is a bonafide domain extension. 🤔

This past weekend was a busy weekend for the House of Brown, and as always, the City of Austin.

As I do every other Saturday, I met with a group of gents from the Executive Leadership Council at Rudy’s.

Unfortunately, due to the down pour of rain at 6am, the meeting consisted of myself and another close friend.

This was good because he and I really needed to catch up with life, work, church and everything else over a few breakfast tacos.

As our time came to a close, knowing I must rush home to post the daily expired domain auction listings, I discovered the Austin Convention Center was hosting the annual Coming Con as read the poster via Rudy’s Bulletin Board.

I’m coming in hot off a business trip to San Diego today, having arrived in San Diego a little after noon Sunday.

Visit SanDiego.org | San Diego, California

While it was a much needed break from the brutal Texas heat, I didn’t get to do much sightseeing as I would have liked.

It was airport to hotel, hotel to customer site for all day meetings and back to hotel, and from hotel to airport.

In addition, I didn’t rent a car, so about the only domains I captured were thanks to “ubering” to and fro.
