FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Berlin, Germany -- June 14, 2004 -- The dotcom days are with us again as Adam Wern and Eric Wahlforss, two students from the Stockholm School of Economics and the Royal Institute of Technology, descended upon the Wizards of OS Conference in Berlin with the aim of creating a dotcom business from scratch in 24 hours.
The two charismatic Swedes succeeded in putting together a multi-disciplinary international team within a few hours, and went on to implement dozomo.com, a revolutionary entrant into the search engine market.
The service, which acts as a meta-search engine, has ambitious plans to take on the incumbent google.com and believes its innovative technology will help it become the market leader within the coming year.
The business is now being auctioned off on eBay as a form of IPO and reached almost $1000 within a few hours and is expected to skyrocket by the time the auction finishes on Tuesday 1700 GMT.

you guys can't seriously think you are going to compete with Google? it is true though that your odds of syndication do go up if you include Google in your press release though. best of luck. if you guys get enough coverage in the blog market then the intrinsic value of the inbound linkage reputation acquired could easily be worth over $1,000 but Google is probably a bit out of the league of any meta search engine.

"reached almost $1000 within a few hours ". That's a bit on the exagerating side, isn't it ? It took almost 2 days to get to this point. Let's face it guys, 24hdc.com is not on the front page of Slashdot anymore, it failed to generate any excitement beyond bloggers and finally your technology does not even come close to the one of Google (you don't even have the same product anyway). The bubble has burst and I would not like to be the poor bastard who shells over 1200$ for this piece of worthless technology you call Dozomo. It is really like 99 again. Anyway, nice try. Better luck next time I guess.

Bra jobbat grabbar! Ni äger. Det är så underbart att läsa kommentarer som dom ovan. Ironi är uppenbarligen inte till för alla.

You still have not clarified the terms of sale. As I wrote in a previous message, there is contradictory information. The eBay auction indicates the company is for sale, but the promotional video indicates that only 49% of the company is for sale. So which is it, 100% or 49% of the company for sale? Is this your final joke on the dotcom era, to commit fraud on unsuspecting buyers?
