Domain Name Wire is reporting that the the winning bid in the auction for .WEB was $135,000,000.
Assuming they're right (which they probably are,) that brings the total web auction piggy bank to over $230 million, more than twice what it was two days ago.
At the Helsinki meeting there was already a lot of interest in the process to decide how the money is distributed, but now there'll be twice as much.
