What ever happened to costas's worth30bucks.com August 15, 2005 11:52 AM   Subscribe

Old-school MeFi question from a five-dollar-newbie: What ever happened to costas's worth30bucks.com that he won in the $30 giveaway?

I mean, besides "nothing". I hope for an answer from the man himself.

Why not just e-mail him?

His home page listed doesn't work, so I kinda assumed the email wouldn't work, either. But I guess now I know what happens when I assume.

If I remember correctly, he had a plan to double the money every so often but after two months didn't have free time to pursue the project anymore.

*heh* I was mulling over resurrecting this as a new post/competition recently but couldn't remember who the hell had done it originally...

Tangentially related: I tried to keep the 30.00 giveaway going at one point, but at the time it seemed to me that there wasn't a lot of enthusiasm. Looking back on the thread, I see that there actually was some, and that jbushnell showed up 2 weeks later and volunteered to front it again. No one ever did anything, though, and it faded into oblivion.

I wish I could mark SeizeTheDay's comment as "best answer". Here's the response from Costas: "You're right; I started work on the site, and then run out of time shortly thereafter. I never really took it live... it's still not a bad idea."

So technically Matt's answer is "best" also. Bests all around!

I for one, read only the posts other people tell me are the best, or _____ wins! posts.
