TradeMe changes hands for big money

Good for Sam Morgan, the fomer owner of NZ's most popular website, TradeMe, the site he started just seven years ago that now accounts for sixty-percent of NZ's web traffic. He is "the former owner" because as you might have heard he's just sold it for the staggering sum of $700 million.

Good for him. Here's a story about how TradeMe began. Apparently it all started with a heater...
