For one curious minute, the most popular Web site in the world was owned by a 29-year-old MBA student in Massachusetts.

It was an hour past midnight, and Sanmay Ved was scrolling through Google’s own beta Web site registration service. Before enrolling at Babson College’s business school, Ved spent 5½ years working as an account strategist and display specialist for Google. He’s a self-avowed “fanboy” of the site, and often tries its new tools in his free time.

“I just wanted to see how the interface looks after you search for a domain,” Ved told The Washington Post. “And what’s the first domain that comes to everyone’s mind?, of course.”

After he typed this into the search bar, he was taken to a listing of purchase availabilities.

“,” “,” “” and “” were all marked by a gray sad face, indicating that someone had already taken those sites. Quite inexplicably, however, the emoji next to “” was happy and green.

An unassuming ‘fanboy’ bought and very briefly owned
