    Pause Fest is an event taking place on 6-8 Feb 2019 in Fed Square, Melbourne. It has run for a few years now with a strong line up of speakers.

    A few stats:

    As a side note, the event site used to be hosted on pausefest.melbourne, which now redirects to the .com.au.

    I know he'll be devastated!

    I remember when I saw the signage, it was a good win for .melbourne. It was very prominent around Fed Square, but without the www it was hard to tell it was a URL. I reckon the usability is still one of the main problems with the new (and not so new) extensions.

    Sounds like a good idea, and the domain change is certainly an example of practical thinking.
