Great Domain Buying Article in Business 2.0

Here’s a fascinating story in business 2.0 about domain buying.:

But the way domainers look at it, they own the property. “And if you own the real estate,” Rabin says, “people are going to wind up there at some point.” Soon, he figures, Wall Street at large will begin to catch on, providing opportunities to tap into the public markets. Then big Internet players like Rupert Murdoch or Barry Diller could buy out the domain owners. Some even speculate that Google or Yahoo — or Microsoft, which is entering the paid search business — will roll up the domainers, cutting out a layer and serving up the type-in traffic directly to their advertisers.

This is not a bubble – this is real. Unless you think “teh Interweb” is just a fad, virtual real estate is here to stay. Heck, even the guy who paid $100,000 for a virtual space station is going to make his money back from the online business.
