LOS ANGELES, CA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Christopher Curry, Technology Principal for SHRIMPO LLC, an Internet technology consulting firm, has announced a new campaign for a controversial set of Osama Bin Laden family owned websites which expired on September 11, 2001. The principal website, www.saudi-binladin-group.com, had a predetermined expiry date of 9-11 and has been the subject of Internet and conspiracy speculation. SHRIMPO LLC and Chris Curry had developed a method which seized control of Osama Bin Laden family’s official website, the Saudi Binladin Group, which expired simultaneously along with the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
The new website’s incarnation is to sell off the website’s pixels to advertisers and citizens wishing to own a piece of Internet history by displaying their messages and graphics on this historic website. Curry says: “Normal citizens can ‘own a piece of Osama’ and show the power of capitalism over tyranny and by proudly owning small pixels on this one of a kind historic website. This clearly was not our original idea; however, we applaud the original and brilliant author and feel this is a great way to further our message of turning a tyrannical event into one of peace, nationalism and capitalism – those three things which are despised by a terrorist movement such as that run by Osama Bin Laden. In doing this, we hope to have pixilated the mission of Osama one piece at a time.”

Prices range from $1 per pixel in blocks of 100×100 pixels. Fees are determined based upon the positioning and visibility of the graphics placed by users. The various expiration dates for user’s pixels range from one to five years depending upon their payment arrangement.
SHRIMPO LLC plans to donate a large amount of pixel-profits to charities listed on his websites. Curry has also remained committed to harvesting a large collection of emails from the expired domain names; so far, it has collected megabytes of email messages between Bin Laden family members, corporate correspondences, and terrorist sympathizers.
Giving a voice to ideas is the essence behind shrimpo LLC’s methodology of creative technology solutions for businesses. Curry says: “Technology is just not my living; it is my entire translation of how I interact with all elements of my life – including coming to terms with those parts of society which I perceive as irregular or could use correction.”
