I have now been in the domain industry just over a year and still find myself learning new and interesting things every day. Because it’s the weekend I wanted to try something new and share one thing I found interesting during the week.
Did you know that Ron Jackson of DNJournal.com was one of the four founding owners of Bido.com?
I came across an article on Conceptualist.com from December 21, 2007 where Ron Jackson originally announced the new business venture. Only four months after that article was released Ron decided to leave Bido.com, which you can read about on DNJournal.com.
This paragraph from Ron Jackson’s article sums it up the best.
“While Bido.com was an exciting joint venture for me, DNJournal.com remained my primary enterprise. I have been able to report on the industry in the way that I have for the past five years because I have taken time to build key relationships and trust with people and companies in every part of the domain business. As long as I call on them as an independent party, the door is always open. If I had to call on anyone as a potential competitor that would change the dynamic with those parties and make it more difficult for me to do my job at DN Journal.”
A few more fun facts about Ron Jackson:
- Owns over 6,000 domain names
- DNJournal.com online since January 1, 2003
- Owned a music business from 1988-2000
- Sports journalist for Fox TV after starting off as a weatherman for ABC in the 70′s and 80′s
- Drafted during the Vietnam War posted to the military newspaper and radio
