    I believe LiveStream.com sell for $100K a couple/few years ago?

    Wow. The guy was involved in setting up a billion dollar company uber – and now for his next venture, he gets the prime generic for $45,000?

    The guy could spend $45,000 on his breakfast.

    Domainers have to somehow get into the loop – less C.S.Lewis; more C.S.S.!

    Being purchased through Sedo, Alan, I am sure the seller had no idea who he was dealing with.

    Yes, one strategy to counteract this is too assume automatically the other person is Mr Big or Ms Big. The problem with that is a lot less names will be sold if we all did this.

    A google search reveals the buyer as #1 for pager.com.
