The Internet is a Country

There is infinite real estate but not infinite attention.
Jan 15, 2021
The beauty of the internet is it's incredibly cheap and easy to become a landowner because there is almost infinite space. For $15 to $30 per month you can set up your own home on the internet without knowing how to build a thing. You can call it a website, a blog, or a shop; it doesn't matter. You're now an internet real estate owner. But if you build it, will they come? Similar to buying a small coffee shop in a strip mall, you're open for business, but does anyone know that? On the internet, you can easily reach beyond the one-mile radius around that coffee shop to all of the more than four billion people who are connected.
