It was awesome to see that IGBAffiliates had a stand at the recent OA&A expo at Earls Court 2 in London. Was interesting to visit them and see the various reactions that came from the visitors. There was clearly those people who knew exactly who they were and others that did not have a clue but took some interest when they discovered that they deal with the Online Gambling industry. I would love to hear your thoughts on whether you think that online gambling is becoming more acceptable in the mainstream or is it still looked at with a tarnished brush by some? The more people I speak to these days don’t seem to blink an eye when I mention that I enjoy a hand or two of online poker and definitely have a few punts on the sporting front. Only a few years back people considered this be taboo. Do you have the same feelings as me or does the online gambling industry have a long way to go still?
So did any of you guys have a bit of a flutter on any of the major sporting events that took place over the last weekend? I bet a few pounds on Rory to the World Championship Golf and for Liverpool to win the Carling Cup final. Almost got there with Rory, hard luck, but I think it is now just a matter of time before he becomes world number 1. Got the win on Liverpool, but how nerve-racking was that game? Cardiff had a go right up until the end, and that is literally. A very good final, especially if you were a neutral spectator. Got some massive Premier League games coming up this weekend and the F1 season is only a few weeks away now. I think Manchester United will have the edge over Spurs, especially after their embarrassing loss to Arsenal and I might have a punt on Liverpool to beat Arsenal at Anfield, they will be on high after their cup victory and their home form needs to come right at some point, and I think that point will be this weekend. Get your F1 fantasy Team together and see if your predictions for the season match up to everybody else’s. I can’t wait for the season to start, I think it is going to be one of the most closely contested seasons in a while. bring it on!!!!
MySpace, do any of you guys out there remember MySpace? I have a feeling that with the news that out of the blue, MySpace has all of a sudden signed up one million new users in the last month and are now averaging forty thousand new sign-ups per day, that you might want to dust off the cobwebs on that old profile and get it updated. This is the news out recently that MySpace seems to be back in fashion, do you think this is a passing trend as before or has Justin Timberlake and his investors got something good going on here? Is Zynga having a role in their come back and do you think because of this, gaming affiliates should be looking at getting involved or at least rekindle their lost love for MySpace? I have a feeling that we need to keep up with this and not miss out, this is definitely showing the power of social media and that even the once forgotten can and probably will rise again in this market.
