i have seen parking companies come and go in my time in the domain business. they are not better than those guys clogging up my mailbox as they clog up the namespace with their spam sites. no difference for me, sorry. using stolen resources is nothing i endorse, i simply lough at those who complain about them and at the same time use their own spam networks to make money. i fail to see a big difference in motivation, tricking people to click links they actually don't want to click and cash in on that ... bot-nets are used to distribute spam, using them for DDOS attacks is only a side effect so in my eyes it is simply a fight between two gangs following the same goal only with slightly different methodology.

slides from my talk at perlmongers wellington tonight about the tech behind iWantMyName.
A catalyst app powered by a RabbitMQ based backend flavored with a lot of CouchDB and sugar coated with some Redis.

Introduction

I'm a geek living at the edge of the world and happen to be in one way or the other connected to the internet since the early 90's. This probably makes me a neo vet or something ... not sure. I know social networks from the days they were called Bulletin Boards and mail was was exchanged once a day via modem to the big scary internet exchange. I do internet stuff since then.

I'm a web mechanic since the early days and do internet related stuff for a living. Some of you might have seen me as your internet guy back in the 90's in Voralberg which happens to be a nice spot in the very western part of Austria.
Some of you might know me as the CTO of united-domains - a domain registrar located in Starnberg, Germany - stuff I did during the first part of the 200x's.
Some of you might know me as the guy hanging out at every geek event in Wellington, New Zealand where I live since some years.
Finally some of you might know me as one of the crazy guys who started yet another domain registrar as if there would not be thousands of them already. That registrar is called iWantMyName and is my main venture in the moment.
