How to Make Money Fast on the Internet: Flip a Web Site!

By David Strom Let me take a moment to reflect on how sometimes we Americans take our freedoms and independence for granted. Take the case of Internet access for example: most of us feel that we need more bandwidth to do our jobs, never thinking that what bandwidth we do consume is more than that available collectively in entire countries. And many of us think nothing of switching from one Internet provider to another, never thinking about how few choices many people of the world have to obtain access (such as in China, where the government is getting into the Internet access business to censor incoming data, among other things). I found it interesting that in all the coverage of the Communications Decent Act, never did I find any mention of what the Chinese government is doing. Sometimes we can be so insular. Think globally, act locally is still very much relevant today. On to this week's topic: my latest job has become a web site arbitrageur, buying and then selling a few weeks' later Paul Hoffman's WebCompare site to MecklerMedia. The new site is now up and running at either www.webcompare.com or webcompare.iworld.com, check it out and let me know what you think: there is perhaps the largest roundup of web server products in one place, covering close to 70 different ones running on just about every operating system imaginable.
