Teenage dotcom millionaire: Reg gets facts wrong
Ben Cohen responds to our stories
As ever the Register has got its facts wrong, Durlacher did not buy JewishNet, nor did any company relating to my father.
JewishNet/SoJewish.com was sold to AIM-quoted Totally plc, who publish TotallyJewish.com and the London Jewish News. Durlacher advised me on the sale and invested no money in the company. For information relating to Totally plc, I suggest that you contact Steve Burns, the CEO. All documentation relating to the sale of soJewish.com is publicly available as it was sold to a public company.
I admit that CyberBritain did, like many other companies at the time, play on the misunderstanding of impressions. It no longer does. CyberBritain at the time did receive 420 million advertising banner impressions in its entire three-year history in the period up to Feb 2000. Such a claim is not unreasonable. It was, however, inaccurately reported as 420 million users, a figure that is ludicrous considering the total Internet population of Europe falls below this.
We now prefer to focus on registered users and will be introducing a registration system to each of our sites. This is to be followed by the appointment of an independent audit of all of our user figures in preparation for the sale of one of our subsidiaries. When these figures are available the Register is welcome to receive a copy.
Hunt4Porn.com has now received 56,000 full registrations.
