Way back in 2005, when Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo faced scattered street protests and rumors of an EDSA 4 revolution in the works, I registered three domains, completely on a whim:
I really didn’t care about the politics, one way or another, but in the true fashion of an enterprising mercenary I thought of it as a way to get a few quick bucks out of the crisis. I pointed the domains to a Sedo parking page, set a price, and waited for the offers to come stampeding in.
Now, two and a half years later, it’s pretty obvious they did not come stampeding in, and in my laziness I haven’t done enough to effectively market these domains to their target audience. The latest “crisis” has reminded me that I should be selling these valuable internet assets more aggressively, so I have placed them up on eBay for anyone who is willing to pay for them — opposition or administration are welcome to join the auction.
Bidding starts at $65. Don’t miss this chance to be a part of internet history and make a difference in the Philippine political scene or something! And be sure to read my clever and colorful promo copy!
