I meant to post this event yesterday, but I was busy taking engagement photos at the Lone Wolf cigar lounge in West LA. A friend of mine who is currently in the Navy asked if I could spread the word about this event. If you haven’t heard about VetsinTech you can learn more about them here. For those of you who clicked the link, you’ll probably notice the familiar extension that they are using.
Here is a little more information about the organization, taken directly from the website:
VetsinTech supports our current and returning veterans with re-integration services, and by connecting them to the national technology ecosystem. ViT is committed to bringing together a tech-specific network, resources, and programs for our veterans interested in Education, Entrepreneurship, and Employment – the 3E’s!
The event itself will be a mixer and it will also include a VIP Panel. The VetsinTech LA event will be held at H.O.M.E – House Of Music & Entertainment. For a small ticket fee of $10 you will be supporting a great organization. To buy tickets to the event, you can purchase them here.

Lately, I have have been researching websites that have been built on new Global TLDs. Although there is a lot of junk out there, I have managed to find a number of gems that I felt were buzz worthy. Tuesday will now be the New gTLD Spotlight Day! Every Tuesday a new site will be featured. If you have a site that you spent a good amount of time developing, feel free to contact me to have it featured!
Today’s spotlight is shined on BestDeals.Today. Can you say affiliate site gone wild? When I first viewed this site, that is exactly what came to my mind. As of right now there are 25,350,030 deals included on this website. The site is easy to navigate and you can filter your searches by price range.
According to Alexa it has a Global Rank of 35,120. That’s not bad! It looks like the owners of the site also redirect traffic from Best-Deals.Today to the site as well. Whatever they are doing it is working as it certainly has climbed the ranks in a short period of time. The average visitor probably doesn’t realize that each product featured on the site includes an affiliate link. The site is certainly coded well and I can tell the UI was well thought out. It is simple to use, yet effective and that’s why it is gaining traction.
I might actually use the site a little later today.
One event that I wish I could attend this year is THE Domain Conference. The main reason I wanted to attend this event is to see my buddy Morgan Linton give the Keynote. For those that are going, make sure you set aside some time to attend the Keynote. If it is anything like Morgan’s past speaking engagements, I am sure you will leave enlightened.
As most of you already know, THE Domain Conference will take place Sept 26th – 29th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The event seems like it is well worth the $699 price tag. Although I won’t be attending, I’ll certainly be viewing both Twitter and Facebook to see how everything unfolds.
If you haven’t had a chance to register, make sure you do so now as there is still time to plan a trip to Florida!
