    This list is desperately lacking Simple, which cleared almost $1,200 per user…

    I’m still sad that Yahoo closed down Geocities. That’s where I first learned to code.

    Not a finance guy but maybe Its not such an easy calculation.

    Now we have the cost per user that too a one time cost, how about revenue per user after acquisition. As an example, Amazon got some of the Zappos users buying and giving $5-10 in profit + all new users after the acquisition based on Zappos brand are free (almost), taking the cost per user down over time. So, not so expensive in the long term.

    Won’t be surprised if now actual cost is no cost, only profit for Amazon. Maybe a good finance person can help get a better perspective.
