What Ever Happened to DotComGuy?
I had reason to investigate what happened to DotComGuy. You may remember him as the guy who lived in his apartment during all of 2000, ordering all of his needs from the Internet and webcasting his life. In 2004, he failed to auction his trademark and domain name because the bid didn’t clear his reservation price, but claimed that he would work out some deal. I couldn’t easily find any further press reports, and I recently checked the website www.dotcomguy.com and got a 403 error. A rather fitting end to a mildly interesting publicity stunt from the dot com glory days.
