“I’m sex.com, you’re not sex.com.” That's my selection for quote of the week.

It’s only one of many choice tidbits in IT journalist Kieren McCarthy’s amazing tale of deceit, skullduggery and the internet, which describes how the sex.com domain name was stolen.

Domain names might not seem like the most exciting subject to liven up your weekend, but Kieren’s best-selling book reads like a fast-paced thriller.

You can get a taste of it here in the first part of ComputerworldUK's serialisation. Go and have a read.
