    NamesCon 2015 was a conference for domain name speculators, such as Shane Cultra, to get out there and meet with people in the industry. It was also a great opportunity for one of Seattle’s domain investors, and member of NamePros, Chris Wright.

    @Chris Wright seized the moment and asked @Eric_Lyon, the administrator of NamePros, for a quick video interview.

    In this segment, Eric will be discussing a lot of material such as combating fraud, scams and spam, how he went from a lurker to administrator of NamePros, emphasis on researching, and why he attended the conference.

    At first glance I thought they did the interview in a bathroom. It looks like he's sitting on a giant toilet.

    No offense. I just thought it was funny looking. Great interview!

    Thanks, and Haha, funny .. and nah, all the walls & furniture at NamesCon (Tropicana, Las Vegas, NV.) were white, which could give that impression I suppose.. lol

    Maybe a new trend could be = "Bathroom Interviews" - great comedy potential. Almost feels like a youtube prank video series.

    Interesting look behind the scenes.. haha I think the echo may have added to the bathroom effect.. and while crazy the idea is, it does have funny viral potential... the Man Show actually did an episode like this one time, viewable the legitimate way @ hulu.

    BathroomInterviews.com is available btw, someone run with it!

    I don't recall seeing you there. Will you be attending the next one possibly? We could etch out a corner and put up a "Beards ONLY" sign. :p ;) :)

    Thanks, but I'm definitely not a star by any means. My nervousness in the interview as I got hit with questions I wasn't prepared for was a little transparent / obvious wasn't it? I'm a bit camera shy. :p :)

    I may have misinterpreted your quote, but I have to ask; Are you saying it's not admirable of me to suggest potential trends that may stem from bathroom comedy? :) (Potential controversial topic?)

    Naah Eric!!
    The Idea is very Genuine n Different, I was already thinking of the "Bathroom Interviews" Idea cloud be a Real Hit if some one go tries for it!! :)
    I mean a guy with somewhat different/ twisted idea like this, made around $80K in Flippa recently as we all know!!
    Thats what I meant!!

    Cheers!

    Ahh, ok, cool.. And I agree, sometimes it's the out of the box or way left field ideas that end up being the most memorable and go viral. ;)

    Why on earth would you conduct an interview in a restroom?
    Look like Eric is in a hurry to answer the questions so he can do his things.

    I try to pace myself, but sometimes, I must admit, I rush a little.. :) .. Restroom Interviews would be purely comedy (Almost paparazzi-ish).. I can only imagine how many times a camera man might get assaulted for trying to talk to someone in a restroom that is quick to temper. It would require lots of precautions and pre-planning. The camera should never point at anyone until they gave consent.
