Rick Latona’s Iraqi connection

Saddam.com is sitting comfortably at Sedo.

In the days of “domain development” talk, it’s surprising seeing a common keyword domain sitting at a Sedo parked page.

One might wonder, why is Rick Latona parking a perfectly developable domain name, but that’s not for us to decide; Rick’s company Digipawn often holds domains in lieu of a loan, so it might be a client’s asset.

Seriously though, why would Saddam.com be parked? The page is ridden with random ads most of which read “Looking for Saddam Hussein?

I don’t know about you, but the image of Saddam in his last moments with a nook around his neck still gives me the creeps.

Still, it’s not easy to comprehend why Rick, owner of the former minisite powerhouse AEIOU would not lease out the domain to a worthy developer. During TRAFFIC Las Vegas, while on the Fast Track committee, Rick Latona expressed his decision not to touch anything related to the web development business with a 10ft pole, ever again.

Heck, even Epik would provide a better alternative to what’s currently on Saddam.com

Incidentally, AEIOU.com is on sale at Sedo for only $98,000 – that’s down from the asking price of $250k of a few months ago.

    Don’t kick a man when he is (perceived to be) down. The domain industry, both name sales and development, is fluid …

    Uzoma – If you’re talking about Saddam Hussein, he’s so deep down underground that he can’t be possibly be kicked.
