Hey gang - I assumed that it was obvious that I was joking. WetCanvas! is still sucking the profit meter from the proverbial bank o' Scott. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
Of course, if anyone knows anyone at Yahoo! who might be interested, or anyone who wants to give me $350M dollars, let me know!

Scott don't know if you want to answer but....
How many sessions per day do you have?
How many sessions from unique IP addresses do you have per day?
Using that as input + a clever business model you can (if I guess on numbers for the above) probably get to an evaluation between 3.5M$ and 50M$. But 350M$ - for that you have to get the exclusive rights to some of the visitors' work; like that Leonardo da Vinci guy - people seem to think he has a bit of a flair for female portraits.

Due to ongoing negotiations with current investors and potential suitors, I'm not at liberty to say too much on this subject.
I can tell you that the entire umbrella of WetCanvas! sites, including Art-Agent.com and ArtistNation were all involved in a recent valuation which was certainly not $350M, but was definitely higher than $3.5M. :-)

Scott, that is great. Want to talk about expanding internationally, or is that already in your plans?
Thats great Scott, you've put so much into this, but we can't loose you. Wouldn't be
the same without your care,

Gang - as I've said time and time again when asked - those that help get us there, will be rewarded, either through having the coolest fullest time job on the planet, or owning an equity stake, or some combination thereof.
To answer your question, Henrik, yes, an internationalization effort is definitely part of our long-term objectives....

Rod! I'd hate to see your site become another commercial pudding!

Actually.. even if Scott does get heavy investing.. it will still be the same wetcanvas.. just with more time and money.. Scott won't be financing it anymore, which I'm sure his fiancee would appreciate! ;-)
