I have worked on quite a few interesting projects including one where code names were assigned to different parts of the project to maintain secrecy and confidentiality of the project. One example would be a project we undertook for a large telecoms company who had decided to launch a new mobile network and required the registration of the new brand name as well as purchasing several matching domains already registered by 3rd parties.
We managed to register the available domains, negotiated the purchase of the registered domains and, configured the main domain prior to the public announcement and launch of the product. It is always interesting working on new, exciting projects which will only be revealed to the public in the future and, always satisfying seeing the positive results after all the hard work put in beforehand.
I would not say this is the craziest story, but rather my most embarrassing: we were at a large annual conference in Hong Kong and after two intensive days we had an event to attend in the early evening. As our meetings had finished earlier than expected, we arrived at the event 30 minutes early. We were asked to wait in the lobby until the event and it appears I managed to fall asleep as my colleague woke me up because I was snoring!

My favourite TLD is .co as although it is a country code TLD for Colombia, they have managed to also market this as an alternative to .com. This benefits both Colombia, with more registrations, and the prospective registrants (domain owner). This shows the benefits of opening up TLDs to more registrations rather than restricting them which some TLDs are still doing.

I am a fan of John Grisham novels & movies and while they are far-fetched in terms of the outcomes, he usually gets the rule of law and procedures relevant to the location spot on. If picking a favourite, A Time to Kill would be my choice.
I would always recommend finding a field, whether in law or any other profession, which you are passionate about, or which interests you. If you find that, the rest will follow…
