Article says domain name auction yesterday would have been “one of the first”.
A planned real estate domain name auction yesterday in San Francisco fizzled as no one placed bids. But an article in the San Francisco Chronicle about the auction will give you a chuckle. It suggests that this would have been “one of the first” live domain auctions:
The few who showed up felt more comfortable negotiating in private – removing the sale from public view and scuttling what would have been one of the first – and probably classiest – live auctions of domain names in the history of the Internet.
Classiest, perhaps. But one of the first? The author needs to do a little fact checking.
By the way, the next live domain name auction will take place in Washington D.C. on Tuesday afternoon.
