Drew Curtis' FARK.com
Drew had somehow gotten into the habit of sending odd news to friends of his in England, where he lived for a year while in college. He started sending emails with the funny news stories to his friends via email. However, emails were going out several times a day, and Drew started to suspect that they might be annoying. Remembering he owned the Fark.com domain name, he started a website and told all his friends to go there for the weird news. That was February 12, 1999.
During all of 1999, Fark got 50,000 pageviews.
During all of 2004, Fark got over 400 million pageviews.
We're not sure what we'll get during 2006, but at this rate by the end of the year there will be more people reading Fark than will be alive on the planet at that time. It will be interesting to see how that works out.
