An Open Letter To Scott Guthrie.
(I saw someone else write one of these -- so i thought i'd give it a go)
Listen Here Scott!
I have an idea that might help microsoft overtake google for online ad revenue.
Why not place text-based advertisements on the default 'yellow screen of death' error page that comes with asp.net.
Just little one-liners, right down the bottom of the page, are all you'd need, something like this:
- Website troubles making you depressed? Change your attitude to life!
- Website development taking too long? Try Ruby in your browser!
I know many companies that would pay a premium to be included on such oft-visited pages.
Say there are 100 million asp.net sites, visited 10000 times a day each, erroring just 0.01 percent of the time, that's 100 million impressions per day!
Slip a few bugs in the next release of asp.net -- you could easily push it up over a billion impressions per day!
I don't ask much. The usual 30% commission will suffice.
