This week’s guest is Patrick Ruddell, a domainer, and the owner of sciencefiction.com. With a background in real estate, he became interested in domains as an investment career when the property slowdown hit in the US. But he’s quick to point out that the real-estate analogy for web domains is over-used and not very accurate.
When Patrick bought ScienceFiction.com for $175,000 it was just an affiliate marketing page with almost no traffic. He and his wife have developed it into a content-rich site serving the science fiction fan community.
Also this week we discussed the newly launched Google Drive: there’s a lot of talk about it – but has anyone used it yet? Also Larry and Sergei want to mine asteroids. And something about a cloud in the shape of Ireland?
