Fantastic sale of 7.io.

It is a long but well worthwhile read of the state of the industry report that @Ron Jackson puts out each year. Definitely a collection of views from people who have shown their success in domaining. While not everyone will agree with everything said by everyone, I think important to read and reflect on the views expressed.
