Years ago, Maryland geek Chris Clark bought the web domain pizza.com for around $20. Eschewing many lowball offers, he just sat on the domain, where it became one of those omnipresent 'parked' sites that relay a message such as "find out everything about pizza" along with 'get a new mortgage,' 'get a trip to vegas', etc. He just closed the sale for the name for $2.6 million. on top of March's sale of fund.com for $10 million.
