Freedom registry

Joost Zuurbier, CEO Last month ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, has released the list with more than 1,900 applications for top level domains.  With so many new domain extensions added to the root zone over the coming years it is no doubt that registrants will have the ultimate choice of getting their right domain. The supply will be endless. In open economies unlimited supply result in a low price, a very low price. Freedom Registry is a registry operator for top level domains. What sets us  apart from other registry operators is that we believe domain names should  be free. It's time for a change. It's time to wake up. It's time for free domains. http://www.freedomregistry.com // @freedomreg

GROW Conference 2012 August 22-24th, 2012 Vancouver, B.C. Re-Thinking Business: Staying relevant in a new era. The GROW Conference explores how the consumer revolution is changing the future of business. Engage or die. The social web has changed consumer expectations and empowered them with real-time information and a digital soapbox. They are your customers and your employees. In today’s noisy marketplace with low switching costs, they can leave you at any time. To stay competitive, companies must create a culture of respect and openness, build a strong brand, and emotionally engage their community. In the land of 'me too' companies what you stand for and how you interact is your differentiator. Speakers: Joe Stump, Founder, Sprint.ly
; Neil Patel, Co-Founder, KissMetrics
; Rick Perrault, Founder, Unbounce
; Rand Fishkin, Founder, SEOmoz
; Dave McClure, Founding Partner, 500 Startups
; Sean Ellis, CEO & Founder, CatchFree
