Very exciting. This proves that there’s significant economic heat building up in the mobile web. A medium starting grow up.
It’s a shame that some people will undoubtedly whinge about the fact that this is pretty amazing income for something as simple as a domain name.
But most importantly to me, and, I hope, to the entire mobile community, is the fact that this is helping fund all the other stuff we do. It certainly doesn’t feel like money for nothing.
(and PS: yes, we will be making sure these winning sites are .mobi compliant)
