Anyone actually know of anyone, big biz or tiny niche biz, making any
revenue worth mentioning with ads on their site?  I'm not counting
tidbits from referrals to Amazon, Fatbrain, CoffeCup, etc.  I mean
serious revenue that would justify putting ads in people's faces.

I can say that in the big wide world of e-commerce, ad-revenue-based
models have been a pretty complete bust and lots of the dot-coms that
have gone down in flames (or are struggling to stay alive after 50%+
layoffs) in the past year's tech bust thought they were going to get
rich off of ad revenues.
