    Just saw this blog article by Edwin Hayward from the UK.

    http://www.webmastering.co.uk/domain-names/the-myth-of-the-domain-name-queue-of-one/

    Edwin is a domainer's domainer, and has got "the runs on the board". So when he writes something, it generally makes a lot of sense.

    I liked this bit:

    Great Article.
    I often get the attitude from the ill-informed "I could have bought that name for $30 5 years ago".
    I tell Yes and could have got Facebook.com for $10 once as well.

    Edwin is excellent.
    I find there is no analogy between real estate and domains
    Domains are not real estate, never have been in their very short life, and never will be.
    Domains are nothing but a way of remembering an IP address
    Good domains are scarce, valuable, and likely to increase in value.
    Apart from that, they have nothing in common with realestate.
    Fortunately domainers are very different to real estate agents.
    The rules governing use .au names appear to be stricter than laws governing land use.
