A US firm has begun selling off a set of Osama Bin Laden family-owned websites which expired on 11 September 2001.
The principal website, saudi-binladin-group.com, had a predetermined expiry date of 9/11 and has been the subject of much conspiracy speculation, according to internet consultancy firm Shrimpo LLC, which is hosting the "one pixel at a time" sale.
Chris Curry, technology principal at Shrimpo, aims to sell off the website's pixels to advertisers and citizens who will be able to display their own messages and graphics on the terrorist's former domain.
"This clearly was not our original idea. However, we applaud the original and brilliant author and feel this is a great way to further our message of turning a tyrannical event into one of peace, nationalism and capitalism, the three things despised by a terrorist movement such as that run by Osama Bin Laden," Curry said.
Prices range from $1 a pixel in blocks of 100 x 100 pixels based on the positioning and visibility of the graphics. The various expiration dates for pixels range from one to five years depending on the payment arrangement.
Shirmpo said that it plans to donate "a large amount" of pixel-profits to the charities listed on its websites. Curry has also remained committed to harvesting a large collection of emails from the expired domain names.
So far, it has collected megabytes of email messages between Bin Laden family members, corporate correspondences, and terrorist sympathisers.
