Join us on Thursday, June 13th, at 3pm Eastern, 12pm Pacific, when our guests on the Internet Law Talk Podcast will be Colin Campbell and Jeff Sass of DOTCLUB, the winners of the recent private auction for the .CLUB Top Level Domain registry.
We’ll be asking them about their successful bid to obtain a new gTLD, and how they’ll use it. What will be different about domains in the .CLUB world, and how are they planning to use it?
An internet pioneer since 1993, Mr. Campbell has built several internet companies which include Tucows Interactive, Internet Direct Canada Inc. (merged with Look Communications in 1999), and Hostopia.com Inc. (IPO TSX: H in 2006 and sold to Deluxe Corporation for 124 million in 2008).
Colin’s companies have won several awards including Profit magazine’s 7th fastest growing company in Canada (1997), 2nd fastest growing company in Canada (1998), #1 fastest growing company (2005) and Inc magazine’s top 500 fastest growing companies (2005).
