Oversee.net parent company of DomainSponsor.com and producer of DOMAINFest Global announced this evening in a press release statement that Bob Parsons, CEO of domain registrar Godaddy.com will be the keynote speaker for their 2011 event.
The motorcycle-riding, gun-loving Parsons is know to be a very outspoken and at times controversial CEO. He has however led Godaddy.com to become the world’s largest domain name registrar boasting of over 8.5 million customers. Love him or hate him, his “views from the top” of the domain space should make for an interesting keynote.
The February, 2011 DOMAINFest event also will feature a fire-side chat with Ben Mezrich, author of the “The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal” and as always an event is planned at the Playboy Mansion . Surely Bob Parsons will fit right in at the Mansion. No word yet on wether he’ll be bringing Danica Patrick or any of the “Godaddy Girls” with him.
Oversee’s official release can be seen after the jump.
