Sunday Thoughts and Updates
One month away until opening day for the Red Sox, and I am getting excited. The Sox look strong this year, and if their pitchers are durable, I think they will have a good season. I am still hopeful that they will get a #1 starter since their rotation seems to be made up of a bunch of #3s.
Speaking of the Red Sox, I am thinking about organizing another Fenway Park meetup this Summer, so if that is something that is of interest to you, let me know.

Companies that have a solid presence at SXSW this year include Sedo, Radix, the .Club Registry, .ME Registry, .CO Registry, and I am sure I am forgetting a few.

Minds & Machines received some good press from Los Angeles Magazine in response to its presence at LA Fashion Week. The Registry is promoting its .Fashion TLD.
I put a bunch of domain names up for sale at NameJet. Many have no reserve price and some have fair reserves. An assortment of the names I listed for sale include the following among others:
