DotComGuy, Gone and Forgotten
Michelle Delio Reader's advisory: Wired News has been unable to confirm some sources Geeks across the net are bidding DotComGuy a gleeful and sarcastic goodbye. The silicon shut-in walked out of his front door Monday after spending 365 days inside a house where he was monitored round-the-clock via a couple of dozen webcams that blasted the life and times of DotComGuy over the Internet. Visitors to the site could observe DotComGuy sitting, sneezing, shopping and sleeping. They could watch DotComDog chase a squeaky toy. But now, having completed what some are calling The Most Useless Achievement of Our Time , rumors are circulating that DotComGuy's sponsors pulled out months ago, and poor DotComGuy was left in the lurch without his promised $98,280 paycheck. E-mails to DotComGuy's media representatives return only an automated response, advising that they "may not be able to assist journalists on a tight deadline." But a

Jump to: navigation search DotComGuy was the name of a former computing systems manager who legally changed his name to DotComGuy from Mitch Maddox in 2000.

The house was monitored and several video feeds were streamed online. The project had a large number of sponsors including United Parcel Service Network Solutions Piper Jaffray Travelocity and Peapod It attracted a lot of attention in the media at first, but gradually public interest faded away.

DotCom Guy to live online for a year
Jane Wakefield Published: 06 Jan 15:26 GMT One Net enthusiast is planning to welcome the new millennium by living online for the first year of the 21st century. Dallas computer systems manager Mitch Maddox is changing his name to DotComGuy and intends to spend the next 12 months relying on the Net for all his food and entertainment. He has moved into an empty house with just his pet cat for company and will rely on Net transactions and email to friends for all his needs. Microsoft's MSN organised a similar project last May when four UK volunteers were locked away for five days to fend for themselves online. What do you think? Tell the Mailroom .

KYRA PHILLIPS, CNN ANCHOR: Well, this past holiday season showed that a lot of people, when it came to shopping, they went online, they got about anything they wanted.

DotComGuy Survives His Year

from the i-coulda-done-*that*! dept. blurzero writes: "Remember DotComGuy? The Texan who decided to prove that people could buy everything they needed through e-commerce by locking himself in his home for an entire year, and Webcasting the entire thing? Well, DCG made it through all 366 days! F* , however, is reporting that DCG's sponsors have all dried up, and he will be receiving none of the $100,000 he was supposed to be paid. There's no word on the DCG homepage This guy would have been a lot braver to try this 10 years ago. Seems like the only real problem for the modern online hermit expecting $100,000 is enough room to exercise.

On the Web, timing is everything, and the DotComGuy project's timing was miserable. In 1995, or even as late as 1998, the idea that a guy would legally change his name to "DotComGuy," lock himself in his apartment for a year and attempt to meet all his material needs via e-commerce would certainly have been considered innovative. But by 2000, when launced, the whole dotcom world was crashing, real people losing their jobs, livelihoods, and stock options, and peoples' tolerance for cute dotcom stunts had worn thin. If you have other information, including amplification and/or corrections concerning the demise of that you would like to see incorporated into this WebElegy, please send e-mail to Steve Baldwin and I will try to include it as time provides.
