For Sale

Stephen writes “Even the most promising companies are feeling the crunch in this latest round of dot com shakeout. The latest is happening in Futurelooks’ very own backyard of Vancouver, BC, Canada. Once known as one of the most sought after URL’s in the financial industry, Global Investment Ventures, Inc., the owners of “”, have decided to start taking offers for this prized possession. At one point, even Microsoft themselves offered the company a fairly large sum of money for the rights to this domain name. A name that they didn’t even know they owned at one point!” They should have taken the deal when Microsoft offered it. I’m not sure if there are any suckers left who are still willing to shell out a million bucks or more for a domain.
