Few people outside the domain name industry will have ever heard about one of the true stars of the Internet age: Rick Schwartz
Rick was recently the recipient of the Domain Industry Pioneer award from Epik at their recent domain developers conference.
Rick is a truly great inspiration, the classic American dream story, followed through with passion, rigour and vision.
Rick is very deserving of this award, in my opinion, for the changes he has made in people lives. From the world class domainers he has helped to the likes of me. Rick has been a mentor to me (although I have never met him or spoken to him) through his blog and formerly his bulletin board. I can truly say together with the likes Frank Schilling & Sahar Sarid, they have changed my life and helped us steer our business and stay focused on the importance of TARGETED TRAFFIC.

Well Done Rick, and thanks.
