How it all Began

An old, bearded shepherd, with a crooked staff, walks up to a stone
pulpit and says...
And lo it came to pass that the trader by the name of Abraham Com
did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And Dot Com was a
comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she had been
called Amazon Dot Com. And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why
doth thou travel far, from town to town, with thy goods when thou can
without ever leaving thy tent?"
And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags
short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, Dear?" And Dot replied, "I
will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages
saying what you have for sale and they will reply telling you which hath
the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery by
Pony Stable (UPS)". Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have
her way with the drums, as long as he could have his way with her. And the
drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods
he had, at the top price, without ever moving from his tent. But his
did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did secrete himself inside Abraham's
drum and was accused of insider trading. And the young did take to Dot
Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly to camel dung. They were called
Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short.
And lo the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the
deafening sound of drums, that no one noticed that the real riches were
going to the drum maker, one Brother William of Gates, who bought up every
drum company in the land. And indeed did insist on making drums that would
only work if you bought Brother Gates' drumsticks. And Dot did say, "Oh,
Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others". And as
Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or as it came to be known,
"eBay", he said, "We need a name of a service that reflects what we are".
And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators".
"Whoopee!", said Abraham. "No, YAHOO!", said Dot Com.
