Happy Monday! I've got a few of updates for you: 1. Due to a flood of nominations, a "run off round" of votes is needed to narrow down the field for THE Domain Conference Awards. Please take a minute to read the list, along with how to submit your votes. I'm pleased to see NamePros, Eric Lyon, and Ali Zandi nominated in particular. Votes from the list linked to above must be submitted by 5pm PDT on Thursday 27th August. 2. The We.com WHOIS data has changed. It lists [email protected] as the registered owner. This email address was used in the $300,000 acquisition of Heika.com. From some research, Heika.com may have been acquired by Renrendai - a P2P Lending company that Tencent (owners of WeChat) invested heavily in last year. 3. I noticed that Ring.com recently received $28 million in Series B funding. Investors included American Family Insurance and Sir Richard Branson. You may have read my Inside Interview with the Ring.com founder Jamie Siminoff, in which he describes how and why he changed his company from DoorBot to Ring, as well as acquiring Ring.com. Talking of Inside Interviews, check NamePros tomorrow for a fascinating interview with the buyer of a $430,000 domain name. 4. Donuts Inc emailed me earlier today to let me know that Donuts is partnering with PetFinder Foundation to launch MyRescue.Dog - a site where rescue dog owners can post pictures and short stories about their beloved rescues and consumers can vote for their favorites. Each posted picture generates a $10 donation to Petfinder Foundation, and each vote generates a $1 donation up to $100,000.
