newdomains.org ticket compo winners announced

The winners of the recent DI prize draw, with three free tickets for the newdomains.org conference at stake, have been confirmed.

To enter the competition, you simply had to leave a comment on DI completing the sentence “The biggest challenge facing new gTLDs next year will be…”

I read all the submissions and found them all interesting but ultimately the comments were completely irrelevant in determining the winners, which were selected by three random numbers generated by Random.org.

The winners were:

  • Colin Campbell of .CLUB Domains.
  • Jeffrey Sass of .CLUB Domains.
  • Phil Buckingham of DotAdvice.

It definitely looks weird that two people from the same company won tickets. Weird enough that for half a second I wondered whether justice would be better serviced if were to fix a different outcome.

But I didn’t. If it looks unjust, blame randomness. Fate’s a bitch.

Many thanks to all who entered. There were some interesting comments.

    Mr. Campbell and Mr. Sass are fine gentlemen with a great vision for .club – certainly worthy.

    Congrats to all.

    Thanks again Kevin! Glad you let the cards fall where they may. Colin and I will have to stop by a Casino on our way to Munich to see if we can keep the winning streak going. 🙂

    And congrats to you too, Phil.
