Sol Orwell and Written About on

It’s not every day that I read an article on about someone I know personally! There’s a great article that was published on late last week about Sol Orwell and his business.  Elaine Pofeldt’s article is as much about Sol as it is about the burgeoning business he built on From the article:

If you are thinking about building a business on a great domain name, look no further than Sol’s for inspiration.
