Hello Mark

I had a great time and learned alot at the convention in Miami.

I wanted to ask some one to address the need for business insurance for online dating web sites? Please advise thank you

I personally found idate an incredible experience. It enabled me to stay committed and focused on helping 2,000,000 people meet their soul mate by March 2009.

With all of these internet dating companies committed to connecting people to people it allows my "Why Wait? Create Your Soul Mate Now!" process to help certain singles focus on what they want and achieve the results they desire, a soul mate.

The internet allows so much leverage for online daters it's heart-boggling. Being able to find love is getting better and better.

Mark thanks for making this possible for not only the online dating industry but for consumers as well, cause ultimately their satisfaction is all that matters in the long run anyway.

Thanks for all your great comments and making iDate2007 Miami the best event ever! As for San Francisco, we will set the iDate/SNC event to have 2 tracks:

1) Mobile for Social Networks. Technology and Strategies.

2) Matchmaking (separate room). We will work with Julie Ferman on this and expect quite a few West Coast matchmakers as well as the more serious matchmakers from around the world.

I agree that new comers in online dating industry will focus on niche dating market.There still have profit margin for them to pursue. Just take www.bikerkiss and as examples, the two sites expanded their market last year greatly, according to their owner. I believe these niche dating sites can gather those who have something in common together easily. Thus those people have same interest, passion, hobby are willing to visit specialty dating site in stead of general dating sites like match and!
