There used to be a lot of people talking about website flipping and selling products on flipping, running blogs on the topic etc.
Most closed shop or sold their blogs/sites etc. It appeared that there were more lucrative ways of making money (maybe by investing in sites yourself if you know the ropes). That's why, I believe, people like Thomas Smale, Eppie, Travis Van Slooten etc., etc., all got out of it.
But there seems to be a resurgence now. We've recently had threads about the Internet Investment Summit, Internet Tycoon and the link. And today another of our members, Adam of Prosperly.com, has announced to his list that he's starting a course in site flipping. As usual there are tools etc (link) and access to 1-2-1 sessions (as with Internet Tycoon and the like).
Just thought I'd mention this launch here as industry news.
