Popular Science has an interesting little article titled “Make Quick Money on the Web.”

It offers five suggestions on how to make some cash on the Internet.  The suggestions include working for the Knowledge Generation Bureau, creating domain names and becoming a critic.


I say, that’s a good start, but Popular Science is thinking way too small.  There are other ways to make a lot of cash on the Internet.  For instance:

  • Start your own counterfeiting operation.  You will be making money.  Literally.
  • Move to Nigeria and send an email to everybody else in the world asking for money so you can leave.
  • Win an Internet-based lottery.  The winnings are usually announced as British pounds, not U.S. dollars, so you’ll have to convert.
  • Organize a Ponzi scheme.  Sometimes the old ways are the best ways.
