The man who legally changed his name to DotComGuy changed it back Tuesday – to Mitch Maddox.
In 2000, Maddox spent one year at home and living off purchases made on the Internet. Video footage of his life was streamed on the Internet 24 hours a day and attracted worldwide media attention.
He later got married and on Tuesday he and his wife, Anne, appeared in court to legally change their names to Maddox.
Meanwhile, an auction for the DotComGuy name and the domain name dotcomguy-dot-com was to end in April, but it’s been extended – and it’s now on e-Bay.
