Yun Ye is probably the most mysterious person who has ever been involved in the domain name business. In fact, most people have never met Yun Ye and have only heard about him and his massive $164 million domain name portfolio sale to Marchex.
Yesterday evening on Twitter, noted domain attorney John Berryhill, who represented Yun Ye’s company (and still represents Frank’s Name Administration company), published this tweet with a photo of Yun Ye that was taken in 2005:

John told me that this is a picture of Frank Schilling and Yun Ye that was rendered as legal postage using Canada Post’s “picture postage” personalized stamp service. The photograph was taken after John and his wife MJ met with Frank and Yun in Canada.
Although Frank can be seen more than Yun Ye in this photo, it is still a pretty cool piece of domain investment history.
